The City of Toronto is marking the start of the holiday season by lighting up Nathan Phillips Square.

Literally.

The 51st annual Cavalcade of Lights returns on November 25 and will feature the first lighting of Toronto’s official 60-foot Christmas tree along with some spectacular fireworks.

The holiday traditions brings thousands of people down to Nathan Phillips Square each year. Besides all the lights, the event will include live performances from some of Canada’s top performers and a skating party.

The highlight of the evening, of course, is the lighting of Toronto’s official Christmas Tree, which will glitter with more than 525,000 lights and 700 individual ornaments and will light up Nathan Phillips Square through to New Year’s Eve.

The tree is truly a sight to see and a holiday tradition that every Torontonian should partake in. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the tree before, here are some incredible pictures from last year’s Cavalcade of Lights.
