The Toronto Eaton Centre lights up for the holidays

The holidays are (unofficially) here! This year’s tree lighting ceremony at the Toronto Eaton Centre was hosted by U.S. Open and Rogers Cup champion Bianca Andreescu along with performances from electric violinist Dr. Draw, DJ 4Korners and Santa Claus!

The fourth annual event saw thousands of attendees make it out to Toronto’s largest mall for the ceremony.

The crowd anticipatedly waited for the tree to light up!

And they went wild! Following the hour long event, mall-goers took pictures and selfies, of and with the tree!

The Eaton Centre partnered with Starbucks once again this year to spread some holiday cheer through a giveaway of reusable Starbucks coffee cups!

The excitement is literally buzzing through the air! Here’s to a great (and early, looking at all this snow) holiday season Toronto!
