Created in 1967 to showcase Toronto's newly constructed city hall and the Nathan Phillips Square public space that fronts the building, the Cavalcade of Lights today kicks off a month of holiday festivities with a tree lighting ceremony in the square on the last weekend of November. The buildings surrounding Nathan Phillips Square are decorated with festive LED lights, making the display even more cheerful. The opening event is marked by free musical performances including the Les Chausseurs de Rêves and the Lemon Bucket Okestra. Cap it off with fireworks and a countdown (who needs to wait for New Year's Eve?). A DJ skating party keeps the festive vibe going all the way to 10:30pm, when your cold fingers may need a break anyway.

- Things to Do in December: "The official City of Toronto Christmas tree this year is more than 60 feet high. If you can't get close (this is a very busy event!), at least you will get a good shot."
- Best for Things to Do in December Because: The good side of the holidays is seeing lights ignite the hearts of the Scroogiest of people.
