Lighting up the sky at Illuminite

Coming soon to Yonge-Dundas Square is another year of Winter Magic! The celebration runs from November 15 to 30 and includes a number of different events happening in the Downtown Yonge neighbourhood.

Our favourite event, without a doubt, is Illuminite. Now in its 8th year, Illuminite turns the square into a winter playground and has drawn hundreds of people each time. There are performers everywhere you turn, showing off every kind of talent you could imagine - from dancers, to jugglers, acrobatics, stilt walkers, acrobats, and more. There’s musical accompaniment too from a number of DJs and bands of all genres.

The highlight of the night has got to be the lighting of the massive tree that is set in Yonge-Dundas Square. With 52,000 LED lights being lit, you can only imagine how amazing it looks.

We can guarantee Illuminite will be one of the most entertaining events you’ll attend in the city this year. If you want to check out more of the Winter Magic festivities there’s also the Ice, Wine & Dine event where you can eat (lots of) great food and drink (lots of) festive drinks, or check out the Window Wonderland displays all along Yonge Street, where stores transform their front windows into an awesome winter scene.

This year Illuminite will take place on November 15 and goes from 5pm-7:30pm, so make sure you don’t miss out. You might even be able to spot the lit-up tree from our building!
