It's that time of year again...

The 2012 Cavalcade of Lights

The 46th annual Cavalcade of Lights kicks off the holiday season at Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday, November 17 at 7 p.m. Great Gulf joins the celebration as the new presenting sponsor of the event and of Toronto's magnificent official Christmas tree.


The evening begins at 7 pm with live musical performances by pop/rock vocalist Suzie McNeil, R&B artist Sean Jones and rising star Alyssa Reid and the first lighting of the Cavalcade of Lights display, followed by a breathtaking fireworks display at 8 p.m.


The celebration continues from 8:15 – 10:30 pm with the Sno-Ball sponsored by Timothy's World Coffee® featuring a concert by international recording artists Dragonette, a fiery pyrotechnic performance by Circus Orange and an open-air DJ dance party with JJ Rock under the glow of thousands of twinkling lights.

Throughout the celebration, the public can visit the 100th Grey Cup Festival tent to have their photo taken with the Grey Cup.

Please come and join us - It’s Free!

We will meet at Queen Street and Bay on the steps of the Old City Hall at 7pm.

    Where do you think the photographer was for this picture that gave him a high vantage point?

      Thanks Stephen. Does the 43rd floor have access that you wouldn't need to shoot through glass?

      I'm hoping the bridge above the square will be open tonight, Sometimes they shut access to it during these events.

      The Cavalcade of Lights event starts at 7pm, so we may miss the beginning of it if we're meeting right at 7pm. Seems to me a 6:45 meet time would allow us time to get set up.

      As it says in the event description, "We will meet at Queen Street and Bay on the steps of the Old City Hall" at 7pm. I'm not sure if everyone can see this for some reason so I'll update the main body of the event info.
