Big things are happening here at Arrowonics!

As a Toronto-based company that’s made strides in the realms of art and entertainment technology, no downtown area seems quite as alluring to fly over as the lakeshore. With Billy Bishop Airport only a stone’s throw (or a drone’s flight) away, this seemed like dream we couldn’t realize – until now. Transport Canada and Billy Bishop have granted us permission to fly at Ontario Place anytime after 11 p.m., at the water’s edge. With this very exciting news, we would like to cordially invite you to join us at any (or all) of the FOUR shows we have planned at the free Ontario Place events occurring each long weekend of the summer.
 
The dates are as follows:
 
- Victoria Day Long Weekend: Saturday, May 20 @ 11 p.m., weather permitting (May 21 as a backup)
Canada Day Long Weekend: Saturday, July 1 @ 11 p.m., weather permitting (July 2 as a backup)
August Civic Holiday: Saturday, August 5 @ 11 p.m., weather permitting (August 6 as a backup)
Labour Day Weekend: Saturday, September 2 @ 11 p.m., weather permitting (September 3 as a backup)
