About the Market:
This non-profit event schedules daily activities and entertainment suitable for all ages in order to support organizations like “The Daily Bread Food Bank” and the “Santa Claus Fund”. What is even better is that admissions during weekdays up until Friday at 5 pm is free of cost to the general public. They also put lots of effort into both decorating and planning these events in order to promote inexpensive ways to make some cherishable memories with loved ones.
Entertainment and Activites:
Experience different cultures with various music and dances from featured/growing artists and performers. There is also a wide range of activities from carolling and storytelling for children as well as rides like the carousel and ferris wheel to enjoy for the entire family.
Create lasting memories by photographing your time around attractions such as the 50 ft tall Christmas tree and “The Heart of Christmas” sculpture made by Studio Rosenblatt. Make sure to also take a glimpse around you for lighting installations and décor which add to the atmosphere of a real-life winter wonderland. Otherwise, I advise you to bring some warm clothes and be willing to make some long- lasting memories with friends and family. Hope you have a happy holiday Ryersonians!
