Vaughan’s Christmas Tree Lighting
You’re invited to rock around the Christmas tree at the City of Vaughan’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony! Come in person to the courtyard at Vaughan City Hall (located at 2141 Major MacKenzie Dr.) on Friday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. to watch as the City’s 38-foot Colorado Blue Spruce comes to life.
The family-friendly celebration will include an official welcome from Mayor Steven Del Duca and Members of Council, photos with Santa Claus, crafts, including mural colouring and other interactive activities before the countdown to light up the tree.
This annual event brings more than just holiday cheer to Vaughan families, it is also a reminder of the true meaning behind the season – to give back. The City is accepting donations until Friday, Dec. 9 for its 13th Annual Toy Drive in support of the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish. Bring a new unwrapped toy for children aged newborn to 18 years old to help ensure everyone has a happy holiday this year. All donations will be directed to the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish, which supplies registered charitable organizations, social service agencies, churches and community centres with new, unwrapped toys and financial donations throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
