Distillery District Christmas Spirits

Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery Historic District mid-November to December 23 and if you go before Friday at 5 pm, and you don’t need a ticket. You do need good walking shoes and a warm coat because this festive event is modeled after outdoor Germany Christ- mas markets that have vendors selling artisan crafts, ornaments, specialty food and other European-style stuff in wooden huts.

There is a $5 admission, however, to the Family Entertainment Zone which includes a Ferris Wheel, Carousel, and Santa’s House. The big guy’s there of course from about 2:00 to 7:30 pm and you can have your photo taken by the pros standing by or use your own device. (For the record, pet photos are Tuesdays 2:00 to 7:30 pm).

Save some film (just kidding) for photos near the Massive Christmas Tree donated by Forests Ontario and Ontario Wood. Victorian-inspired carolers complete with fluffy white muffs stroll along the cobblestone walkways and stop for photos. All this under a canopy of magical lighting and seasonal décor. If that isn’t captivating enough, families can participate in (or just watch) the daily Santa’s Elves Sing-Along performance at 5 pm weekdays and 10:30 am and 2:00 pm weekends.
