Our Pick of the Week: Calvacade of Lights

The holiday season officially kicks off in Toronto this weekend with the 53rd annual Cavalcade of Lights!

The free event will feature the first lighting of the city’s official 50-foot Christmas tree, illuminating Nathan Phillips Square (100 Queen St. W.) under the twinkle of more than 525,000 energy-efficient lights and 500 ornaments. There will be live performances throughout the evening by Inuk artist Riit, guerrilla-folk party-punk band Lemon Bucket Orchestra, and theatrical companies Creations In Vivo and les Chasseurs de rêves along with a spectacular fireworks display.

Be sure to bring your skates too – the Nathan Phillips Square ice rink will open for the season with a skating party hosted by DJ MelBoogie, who has opened for the likes of Lauryn Hill, Busta Rhymes, and Major Lazer. 

Cavalcade of Lights happens this Saturday, November 29, from 7-10:30 p.m.
