If one thing’s for certain, Toronto is crazy about its winter festivals.

From the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District to the Holiday Fair at Nathan Phillips Square, the city comes to life over the winter months.

And this winter, there’s going to be an even bigger holiday attraction for Torontonians to get excited about.

The Aurora Winter Festival, a family-friendly holiday attraction, is returning to Toronto, bringing six weeks of festive fun to the city.

This year, visitors can look forward to mystical characters like Yin the Yeti, a candy cane lane with a “Gingerbread Hut and Candy Shop.”
