Toronto Through My Lens

Holiday Fair & Cavalcade of Lights

This year Holiday Fair joined together with the annual Cavalcade of Lights event at Nathan Phillips Square. I checked things out this past weekend at the heavily-attended event.

Games & Midway for the Kids…

Lots Of Lights…

This year’s naturally grown spruce tree (55 ft. high) came from Baldwin, Ontario and is decorated with more than 300,000 energy-efficient lights and 500 ornaments. It will remain on display throughout the holiday season and will then be recycled into mulch for tree planting in the spring. The Christmas tree lighting is sponsored by Toronto Hydro-Electric System.

The Cavalcade of Lights will run until January 7, showcasing light displays and festive decor alongside public skating on Nathan Phillips Square. This year the event takes inspiration from light festivals and cultural celebrations around the world and features elements from a variety of holiday traditions associated with light, lantern and fire for new lighting installations.

The skaters returned to the ice after the Zamboni run-through…

Lots Of Vendors…

Mobile ATMs conveniently on hand beside the vendor tents

Food!

And of course, no event is complete without BeaverTails <so good…>
