PNE / Playland
Completed On


Project Overview:

In 2023, TDR Electric, in partnership with Radiance Energy, undertook a significant lighting upgrade project at the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) Fairgrounds and Playland in Vancouver. This expansive project involved replacing over 6000 light fixtures across six different buildings within the fairgrounds, including the amusement park. A key feature of this upgrade was the installation of RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color-changing lighting on the exterior of the PNE Coliseum. This innovative lighting system is programmed through a computer and can be controlled online, allowing for a versatile display of colors and themes to celebrate various occasions and holidays.
