Cavalcade of Lights 2018

Bring on the fireworks because winter is coming and that means cold, cold and more cold. Great Gulf presents the annual Cavalcade of Lights at Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday, November 24th starting at 6pm and winding down at 10pm.

This is the also the night for the first lighting of the humongous and official Toronto Christmas tree, DJ skating parties and entertainment from Illuminair.

The light rain is supposed to end around 8pm and the temperatures above freezing are welcome from previous years. Actually it never really stopped raining - darn you weather person. One difference for 2018 is that they have closed off the elevated walkway.

The detailed event schedule and road closures from the City of Toronto is as follows:
6 p.m. – A skating party with DJ Sean Sax, sponsored by Tim Hortons, spinning hip hop and funk classics. This veteran DJ has been a prominent figure in Toronto's Black music scene for over 25 years.
