Toronto Cavalcade of Lights: Nathan Phillips Square

Posted 04/Dec/2006 13:20:00 by Sheryl

It's Christmastime in Toronto and the city is lit up like, well, a Christmas tree.

For forty years, lights have been strung and a giant tree erected in Nathan Phillips Square, in front of Toronto City Hall.

Over the years the event has grown - now more than 50,000 people attend the tree lighting and fireworks ceremony, and a variety of neighbourhoods throughout the city take part as well.

With the city of Toronto setting an example in energy conservation, Nathan Phillips Square is decorated entirely in blue and white LED lights. Which is a good move, considering there are over 100,000 lights in the display.

The opening ceremonies featured a light projection show called "Immersion" where images were projected onto Old City Hall, and every Saturday night until New Year's Eve will also feature fireworks and concerts.

Throughout December I'll be featuring different neighbourhoods throughout the city and their respective displays for the Cavalcade of Lights.
