There’s really no better way to mark the start of the holiday season than by attending the magical Cavalcade of Lights.
Now in its 51st year, the 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 Cavalcade of Lights is a 50-year Toronto tradition bringing families together to celebrate the start of the holiday season,” said Mayor John Tory in a statement.
The holiday tradition 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.
