The Toronto Christmas Market is back for its 8th year at the Distillery Historic District.
The Distillery District is a commercial and residential pedestrian-only area in downtown Toronto that contains numerous cafes, restaurants and shops housed within 40 heritage buildings in the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery. With cobblestone streets, the annual Toronto Christmas Market offers many attractions.
A 50-foot Christmas Tree stands majestically at the centre of the market. It is decorated with 40,000 glowing lights, 800 Christmas ornaments and 1.5 km of gold ribbon.
As night falls it illuminates with light.
Candy Cane Carolers stroll through the market singing Holiday favourites.
It was a very cold day. To keep warm Margaret hid herself in a full-sized Gingerbread House and I found something better.
This year I was “naughty” and Margaret was “nice”.
Among its many Christmas-inspired activities the market features for the first time a 100-foot long light tunnel.
Inside you can make your own cheese fondue. A treat for visitors to engage along 3 tables.
At the end of the tunnel you can take a selfie. Who could resist.
There are also vendor displays for shopping and eating.
Laundry day for Santa.
