Wacky and wild Christmas light displays in Toronto
Christmas lights in Toronto aren't the outlandish affair they used to be. In the span of just a few years, the city has lost some of its most Griswald-esque light displays, notably on Caledonia Rd. and Somerset Ave. That said, there's still a few over-the-top Xmas installations to take in around town.
Chief among these, of course, is the annual bonanza on Brock Ave. This Christmas beacon glows as brightly and lonely as the star of Bethlehem just south of Dundas St. at number 188.
The award for most festive street, however, would likely go to Glen Lake Ave. just south of the Junction. Along with the indulgent but wonderful display at Dorval Rd., there's a host of houses with impressive light shows all in close proximity to one another. A sleeper choice for a festive walk is the Beaches boardwalk, which is decked out with lights.
The Financial District is also a bit of a destination for Christmas lights as many of the big office towers drop coin on classy displays. My favourites are at Brookfield Place and Commerce Court. And, naturally, City Hall is also perfectly festive right now. What better time to go for a skate at Nathan Phillips Square?
