This year’s Cavalcade of Lights shone at Nathan Phillips Square Saturday night, overcoming the damp conditions to continue a more-than 50-year tradition.
The event, a favourite among Torontonians, dates back to 1967. It kicks off the holiday season with the first lighting of the city’s Official Christmas Tree and lighting display at Nathan Phillips Square. Saturday also marked the opening of the rink outside Toronto City Hall and those at dozens of other across the city. More info on the rinks’ hours and locations can be found on the city’s website.
