November is awesome. Why? It’s the time of the year when you are allowed to start getting excited for Christmas or whichever holiday you celebrate! You know when all the festive lights, snow and red Starbucks cups appear? Yes, this is it!
Winter in Toronto is very cold, but the holiday festivities that the city puts on make it such an exciting time and place to be. The other good news is that it’s only November and the average temperate is about 7 degrees which is still nice enough for doing outdoor fall activities!
In downtown Toronto, Yonge Street is where all the winter activities can be seen! Looking for beautiful holiday lights? There will be a 40-foot sculptural light tree, 3D polar bears, reindeers and more! As well, the community has planned many events to celebrate the holiday season right in the heart of Toronto such as Illuminite, Window Wonderland, Kidzfest, Buskertainment and Ice, Wine & Dine.
Today I will introduce you to the Winter Wonderland event that is going on until the end of this month! From November 1st you may have noticed that the window displays of about 30 businesses down Yonge Street have been a little more decorated than usual! It is because these businesses are competing with each other to create the most creative or eye-catching holiday windows.
Until the November 28th, you can vote for whichever window is your favorite at the website here! Best of all, this is completely FREE!
So grab your winter coats, walking boots and take a walk down this busy street or check out the other events going on!
Happy voting! The winner will be revealed at the Awards Ceremony on November 28th!
