Toronto’s Bloor-Yorkville will be transformed into a winter wonderland this November, as the¬†neighbourhood will be kicking off the season with its annual Holiday Magic celebration.

You can get into holiday spirit starting November 23, as you check out the lighting of the village’s Christmas tree, the vibrant display of lights, and enjoy a free performance from Canadian pop-singer Ruth B.

If you haven’t checked it out before, Holiday Magic is a family-friendly community celebration that will feature an impressive free performance from Ruth and the annual¬†‚ÄúFlick the Switch‚ÄĚ lighting ceremony.

The highly anticipated event will illuminate the neighbourhood for the holiday season from November 23 to December 31, creating a unique destination for patrons of the neighbourhood to shop, dine, and take in the area’s art and culture while surrounded by festive lighting.
