Saturday, December 12 at Pacific and Dundas. 11am to 1pm
This is yet another reason that you will never have to set foot in a mall ever again if you live in or around the Junction. Kids will be lining up to tell Santa what they want for Christmas at the Junction City Square and partaking of free cups of hot cocoa, carols, story-telling, crafts and general neighbourly cheer. Of course, families from all across the city are welcome to visit and maybe even do some shopping at the local retailers. You won’t get that pre-fab-mass-market feel that you get at the mall and you’ll have to walk down an actual street to get from store to store and none of the local cafes and restaurants have franchises at food courts, but who knows? You might even like it.
Disclaimer: Last year the Junction Santa did happen to promise at least a couple children that he would for sure, no problem, be delivering on their Christmas wishes. Prepare as you see fit.
From the press release:
The Junction has become one of West Toronto’s most child friendly neighbourhoods. This year at our “Santa in the Junction Event”, we’ll have and abundance activities from dancing and sing-a-longs to crafts, free hot chocolate, and candy canes for kids young and old. Come celebrate this holiday season by helping us decorate our Christmas tree topped by a lighting ceremony! Internationally renowned storyteller Norman Perrin and the children’s dance performers will be joined by HO, HO, HO Santa Claus himself!
