Lowe's Christmas Market Carolling

#Toronto voices sang out in World record attempt for the largest public carolling challenge in the historic Distillery District. Mill Street Brewery provided branded glasses and reusable LED candles for participants and donated $1 to the Daily Bread Food Bank for every person that joined in. As one of the best places in Toronto the Market brings out the best of the district. Nooks and crannies were filled with inviting chairs, vendors and plenty of adult beverages for purchase and sample - it's not known as the Distillery District for nothing!
Pamphlets were handed out with lyrics to the challenge songs: Let it Snow!, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, O Christmas Tree, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls, Silent Night, Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. The sing-a-long was scheduled for Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 5 pm.
"This holiday season Toronto will once again celebrate the romance and magic of a traditional Christmas at Lowe's Toronto Christmas Market. Inspired by the Old World and influenced by the New, this free annual event captures all of the tradition, heritage and charm of a European Christmas Market, while showcasing hundreds of unique and local handcrafted products. Family friendly entertainment includes musicians, carolers and children's choirs."

The challenge is to get the most carollers singing together in one place and the number to beat was 15,000! The Candy Cane Carollers led the crowd in singing traditional Christmas songs. The number of singers was reported as approximately 7,300, so South Korea's record didn't fall today. Organizers say they will try again next year.

See more Christmas fun after the jump.
