    Hi, I thought that the Luna at the English Bay will be illuminated for some time after Dec.3rd every night.. I took my grandson there to see it, but no lights were on. We were hanging around the beach from 5PM to 7PM and left disappointed. During that time many people stopped by, wandering the same thing. It must have cost the city lots of money to bring it here, so I do not think it would be that much more expensive to light it daily for few hours. (5-10 maybe?) It would not hurt the attendance on the special days Dec.3,5,6 or so, but not everybody can make it on those days. Why not make it beautiful every day?
    Please give it some thought.
    Thank you.
