The largest Christmas tree ever displayed in Distillery District has arrived.

Provided by Forests Ontario and sourced in Milton, the soaring 55-foot Silver Fir tree will serve as the centrepiece for The Distillery Winter Village.

“[It’s] the tallest Christmas tree we’ve ever had at The Distillery Historic District,” a spokesperson told Daily Hive.

The massive tree was brought in on a flatbed truck and hoisted into place by a crane.

Set in Trinity Square, the tree will be decorated with 60,000 twinkling lights, over 600 giant ornaments, and two kilometres of garland before it’s lit at 6 pm on November 18.

Its lighting will mark the start of The Distillery Winter Village — the renamed, revamped Toronto Christmas Market.

Running until December 31, the holiday experience will feature eight curated vendor cabins, 12 food vendor cabins, and a line-up of buskers, carolers, and other entertainment.

Check out the arrival of the tree, and other Distillery Christmas hallmarks, below.
