Spring Lights with Modo

Modo member and Eastside Culture Crawl artist, Ben Z Cooper, co-founder of “experiential studio” Hfour, books Modo vehicles to help with setting up light illuminations for their events. Their upcoming project, Spring Lights , will take place at Queen Elizabeth Park at the end of April. 


Spring Lights with Modo

Tell us about the event—where and when will it take place?

Spring Lights is a local celebration of the arrival of spring in Vancouver, presented by the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. After a long winter, we invite you to experience illuminations, performance, and community; all under a canopy of cherry blossoms. Hfour has been projecting on cherry blossoms in Vancouver for five years. It’s the first event of it’s kind in the world. This year, we will be illuminating a city park in Vancouver with vibrant projections, lighting, and light sculptures, and also feature dance performances choreographed by Heather Laura Gray, and a musical soundscape by Adham Shaikh. Best of all: it’s free!

How can members get there?

The event takes place at Queen Elizabeth Park on the west side of the park near the 33rd Ave entrance. Take Cambie up to 33rd and turn into Queen Elizabeth Park. There will be limited parking so plan to park below and walk for a bit.

How does Modo help you get ready for the event?

We’ve used Modo vans and cargo vans while setting up the event for the last couple of years. It’s been hugely helpful as the event grows bigger and we need to bring in more gear. I love the convenience of using a wide variety of vehicles for different needs. Cargo vans for moving gear, and cars for day trips and road trips.

What’s your favourite Modo trip to date?

Last year, we had a gig in Harrison Hot Spring Resort. It was so much easier to book a cargo van through Modo than the long process of renting a van elsewhere. Any event where I get to soak in a hot tub is a good time!


This event is weather dependant. 

Date: April 15th–16th, ~8:15pm (dusk) until 10pm
