The festivities will kick off with a tree lighting ceremony and a performance by one of Canada's top musicians.\nWatch the massive 50ft tree burst into light. The branches will be decked out in 40,000 lights, 800 ornaments, and 1 km of ribbon.\nVisit the beloved 'Heart of Christmas', a giant heart-shaped sculpture perfect for snapping photos with loved ones or friends.\nWander into Santa's house to glimpse him and his elves singing some classic holiday favourites. Explore the historic streets of the Distillery District and take in the many ornaments and festive installations the market has to offer.\nView this post on Instagram ✨Tis the season✨ The Distillery Christmas Market returns to the city today @toxmasmkt ❄️ A post shared by Arjun Yadav (@arjsun) on Nov 15, 2018 at 8:56am PST\nNo market is complete without a tasty treat, and you can indulge in some delicious goodies like decadent hot chocolate from Cacao 70, authentic waffles from Wafel Bar, and sweet cones from Eva's Original Chimneys.\nView this post on Instagram ✨🎄 1 day till Christmas.
