Many have probably already planned where to go on the weekends filled with December events
Friday Dec 01st, 2023
I would like to share my favorites with you:
- Casa Loma Christmas at the Castle: From December 2 to January 2, the Toronto Castle will transform into a winter wonderland with captivating light installations, performers, and more. The interior will be appropriately adorned with a 40-foot Christmas tree in the Great Hall. Young visitors can peek into Santa's workshop, decorate treats, and enjoy craft activities. Also, there will be a winter show, "Holiday Lights," at the castle from December 1 to January 8.
- Bloor-Yorkville Holiday Magic: This part of the city will be adorned with bright lights and garlands. Year after year, the organizers of this show create a festive atmosphere there.
- The Distillery Winter Village: This list wouldn't be complete without the city's most famous Christmas market. Enter this sparkling Christmas world with giant gingerbread houses filled with unique holiday gifts, fairy light garlands, a huge Christmas tree, and numerous daily performances.
All these places are enjoyable but can be very crowded, and parking issues on weekends may occur.
If you feel like getting out of the city, you can have a great time on farms.
- Holiday Evenings at Black Creek Village: If you haven't been to Black Creek Village for a while, December is an excellent time to visit. Take an evening stroll through the village and enjoy puppet shows, holiday games, crafts, and old-fashioned treats on December 2, 9, and 16.
- Downey's Farm: Can any family Christmas event be complete without a trip to Downey's Farm? The annual tradition of fresh farm produce and visits with Santa continues from November 25 to December 17. Families can also participate in treasure hunts, reindeer feed-making, and other holiday activities.
