The holiday season is officially here as Mayor John Tory has switched on the 60-foot Christmas tree on Nathan Phillips Square at City Hall. The tree and the lights on the Square will be lit for the season and into part of 2021.
The City’s 54th annual tree lighting was filmed in advance this year to comply with public health guidelines and avoid large crowds gathering on the Square. In previous years, the Mayor lit the tree during the Cavalcade of Lights. With this year’s Cavalcade of Lights cancelled due to COVID-19, residents can watch the tree lighting on the City’s YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/eA77rjweTc4.
