December has rolled around again, and it’s officially acceptable to start getting festive! A twinkle here and pine tree there, even Toronto is showing its holiday cheer. If you find yourself in the downtown core, or want to take a stroll through the brightly lit streets near Yonge and Dundas, we rounded up a few locations nearby. Dinner and a light show anyone?
Huddle Around Hudson’s Bay: For years, The Hudson’s Bay Company has created a winter wonderland at its Yonge and Queen location. Whimsical, mobile displays animate the intersection and draw large crowds! This year is no different. Though the characters and overall look has been modernized, the charm remains. Check it out day or night before it’s too late!
LEDs at Yonge and Dundas Square: Not your traditional tree, the 40-foot structure at Yonge and Dundas is made up over 52,000 LED lights! It shines bright and stays true to the look of the area.
Skate & Sight-See at Nathan Philips Square: This downtown-core creation will leave you looking up. WAY up! Toronto City Hall has raised a 60-foot tree. The best part? You can skate while you stare! There’s a rink right at Nathan Phillips Square, so make sure you bring your skates and pirouette your way through.
Have you had a chance to look at any of these festive sights?
