This year, the city will be lighting up Toronto's official Christmas Tree in the centre of Nathan Phillips Square. Adorned with a ton of Christmas lights and decorations, the Cavalcade of Lights also includes musical performances by Canadian artists and a massive fireworks show that will begin at 8:30 p.m.

And the organizers of the annual event have also released this year's schedule of performers and ceremony festivities, which you can check out here.

Highlights of this year's schedule include a Skating Party with music played by a guest dj, all of which is FREE!

Last year's Christmas tree theme was a white spruce that stood at nearly 18-metres tall, with 700 individual ornaments and about 525,000 energy efficient lights that lit up Nathan Phillips Square.

This year's tree has already been selected and takes nearly 2 weeks to decorate which means the process will begin soon and we can't wait to see what this year's theme is!

The 51st annual Cavalcade of Lights begins at 6 PM, and no need to purchase tickets; this event is entirely free of charge! But arrive early because it's always insanely busy!
