Toronto Christmas Market 2012
For those of you who truly enjoy the magic of Christmas traditions, the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market on Santa’s Lane will become the perfect place to celebrate. Santa, his elves, a massive Christmas tree, a Ferris Wheel, magical lighting, children’s choirs and every single Christmas symbol can be found in this Market where the traditions of the Old World are combined with the sparkles of the New.
Children will also be delighted to go through the Fairy tale Christmas Forest maze, to hear story readings and to see real reindeers while eating a candy cane. So, from November 30 to December 16, visit the Distillery Historic District for a romantic Christmas atmosphere that will fill you with warmth and joy.
Every weekend, from November 24 to December 16, 2012, Toronto’s waterfront is the place to be!
