Default Re: LIGHTFOOT DAYS-Bust of Lightfoot to be installed in Orillia

If you could read his mind, what would Gordon Lightfoot be thinking?

Residents will have an opportunity to find out when the hometown troubadour appears outside the opera house Nov. 5 for the unveiling of the Lightfoot bust.

The head-and-shoulders sculpture was created by artist Gino Cavicchioli and donated by the legendary singer/songwriter.

West Street North will be closed between Mississaga Street and Coldwater Street to accommodate the anticipated crowd.

The unveiling, which coincides with an annual weekend-long Orillia Lightfoot Days celebration, is set for 2 p.m.

An interview with Lightfoot, conducted Oct. 17, will be aired on television to promote a Rogers Hometown Hockey event, happening in Orillia Nov. 4 and 5.

Council earlier this year approved $15,000 to cover the cost of installing the sculpture.
