Casa Loma's Christmas Event Takes You Through A Forest Of Lights & Into Candy Land (PHOTOS)

It's Christmastime at Casa Loma, and the palace has been transformed into an enchanting world of lights and endless holiday scenes.

The illuminated trail leads to a building, and inside you'll discover rooms with different festive themes.
