Vacations

Winter Torontoland

In the next few weeks, keep an eye on your calendar because there is a lot to do in Toronto. Whether you like cruises, art or musicals, there is an activity for you every weekend.

Kick off events

On November 17, start the Holiday season with a Bang and join thousands of revelers for the official lighting of the Christmas Tree and Nathan Phillips square in the 45th edition of the Cavalcade of lights. Then, on November 18, meet Santa and his 108th parade, his 25 different-themed floats, his 22 bands, his 100 celebrity clowns and more than 1,500 volunteers.

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.

Winterfest

Every weekend, from November 24 to December 16, 2012, Toronto’s waterfront is the place to be! Come with your family and join Santa and his merry elves aboard the Winter Wonderland Cruise for a mere $12 per adult. You will take photos with Santa and receive treats. The Mariposa Santa Cruise leaves at 10:30AM and 1:30PM and children under 6 are admitted for free.

You can also enjoy a free puppet show in Queen’s quay terminal and ice skate at Harbourfront Centre.

During the next few weeks many wonderful musicals will be presented in Toronto. Here are a few that you should not miss:
