Huge fireworks show happening in Toronto this month

Every November at Nathan Phillips Square there's a huge fireworks show, but this year the spectacle is getting ever bigger. The Cavalcade of Lights is turning 50, and the annual holiday tradition is getting the anniversary treatment.

Always host to the city's official 60-foot Christmas tree lighting, fireworks, a skating party, and live shows, this year the entertainment is better than ever.

Everything kicks off with a very special Choir! Choir! Choir! singalong to John Lennon's "Imagine" with special guests Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet, then the tree lighting at 7:25 p.m.

Next it's Cris Derksen's Cavalcade Orchestra, a collection of Juno-nominated Canadian talent performing live before a super cool lantern procession and then the amazing fireworks display at at 8:35 p.m.

Whitehorse performs after that on the main stage leading into a very special set by General Eclectic for the skating party under 525,000 energy-efficient lights.

Get there early for a good spot! The event goes down on November 26.
