As the City of Toronto prepares for the holidays, the sights and sounds of the season can be spotted all over the city.

Toronto’s official 60-foot Christmas tree has already arrived at Nathan Phillips Square and will be decorated and adorned with more than 700 individual ornaments and 3,810 meters of LED lights.

The tree lighting takes place on November 25 in time for the 51st annual Cavalcade of Lights.

Following the Cavalcade of Lights, the square will also be the home of the second annual Fair in the Square presented by Epilepsy Toronto, this year’s Fair will be running from December 1 to 23, combining the charm and elegance of a Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a dazzling winter carnival right in the heart of the city.

Look forward to plenty of festive fun, including a charming artisan village, warm food, ice skating, lively entertainment, and midway rides!
