Winnipeg Is Getting A 26-Foot Christmas Tree & The Amazing Race Canada Host Will Light It
A huge tree, lit for Christmas and giant holiday decor will turn the mall into a winter wonderland.
Cadillac Fairview is starting the holiday season in style with a tree lighting at the mall. This tree lighting in Winnipeg will be the first-ever at the Polo Park Mall. Plus Olympian and The Amazing Race Canada host Jon Montgomery will be there to kick off the festivities.
On November 14, Cadillac Fairview is having a tree lighting event at its mall, Polo Park, in Winnipeg. The massive 26-foot-tall Christmas tree will get the star treatment, literally, when it's lit for the first time.
The tree lighting ceremony will be an interactive experience but, in keeping with the holiday season, exactly what that entails is being kept under wraps.
"The local community is invited to come together and participate in this momentous holiday event," the company said in a news release.
Since Cadillac Fairview is the official home of Team Canada, the partnership with Montgomery just makes sense. He's from Manitoba and he won a gold medal in for men's skeleton at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver back in 2010.
Montgomery will host the tree lighting event and also count down the lighting of the Christmas tree.
And there will be lots of entertainment at the event including live music from an electric violinist and music from local DJ, Zack Daniels.
The tree will be lit at 6:00 p.m. local time but Cadillac Fairview wants people to get there an hour early to get a good spot by the tree for the lighting.
If you're looking to get those perfect Instagram photos from the tree lighting, in addition to the tree there will be other Christmas decorations for you to snap photos of. Cadillac Fairview confirmed to Narcity that there will be larger than life holiday decor at Polo Park mall-like hanging acorns and reindeer, transforming it into a winter wonderland.
This isn't the only tree lighting event happening at malls in Canada. The tree lighting at Polo Park mall is one of five tree light celebrations happening at Cadillac Fairview locations across Canada.
