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

https://www.simcoe.com/whatson-story...lf-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.
