Toronto Cavalcade of Lights Nov 25

The long process to put up thousands of lights over Nathan Phillips Square has already started. A matched set of manlifts is in the reflecting pond and stars and nets full of lights are being placed on the arches. This year's free celebration will happen Saturday, November 25, 2017.
It is an annual holiday tradition that fills City Hall with tens of thousands of people taking in the lighting of the official Christmas Tree along with skating parties, live entertainment and some breathtaking fireworks.
"The focal point of the annual Cavalcade of Lights celebration is the lighting of Toronto's official Christmas tree. For 2016, the tree was a white spruce selected a year in advance from the Bancroft, Ontario area. Approximately 18-metres (60-feet) tall and featuring close to 700 individual ornaments and 3,810 metres of energy efficient lights (525,000 lights), the 2016 tree lit up Nathan Phillips Square through to New Year's Eve."
