Bastion Lighting in Various Colours
The Bastion now has six stand-alone lights surrounding the structure with the computer capability of providing accent colouring.
Organizations can request the Bastion be illuminated in specific colours to promote their cause.
The system can be preprogrammed for a different colour(s) months in advance.
To have a request for lighting considered the following information should be provided at least three (3) weeks prior to the requested lighting date
- the nature of the cause

Bastion lighting request approvals are at the sole discretion of the City.
Applicants will be advised by phone or email stating whether their request has been approved within two (2) business days of receipt.
If a lighting request is approved, the Bastion will be illuminated for the dates requested from dusk to dawn. The lights operate on a sensor that will activate at darkness and turnoff when daylight.
- private or personal events (birthdays, anniversaries, or weddings)
- anything that contravenes city policies or by-laws
- events or organizations with no direct impact or connection to the City of Nanaimo

Note: The Bastion is wrapped in its yearly rain screen on or about the last week of October to protect it during the inclement weather of winter. The wrapping can still be illuminated against and does not affect the outline.
