The holidays have arrived!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! There is nothing more beautiful than the glow of the city lit up over the Holidays. With that in mind, we thought we'd share some of the best lights and decorations you can see in Ontario.

1. The Cavalcade of Lights | Toronto

Located in the heart of Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square, the Holiday Fair in the Square runs December 7th – 23rd. Combining beauty and charm of a Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a winter carnival, Fair in the Square is a new favourite Toronto holiday tradition for many families. 

2. Terra Lumina at Toronto Zoo | Scarborough

After nightfall at the Toronto Zoo this winter, you are invited to pursue an immersive experience along a 1.5 km walking path that travels into the future and back. Let yourself be transported by vibrant lighting, multimedia effects, breathtaking video projections and an original score to an enchanted world filled with possibility. And explore this bright and hopeful future to reveal the powerful secrets of tomorrow.

Enjoy this festive experience from November 22nd - December 31st.
