The Rosedale Main Street BIA had it’s annual Cavalcade of Lights Festival! This years event took place on Saturday November 30th from 2pm to 6pm. The highlight of the event was the lighting of the 50ft blue tree on top the CP bridge at Scrivener Square. This years event was bigger and better than ever with lots of fabulous entertainment and activities planned along the shops on Yonge Street from Woodlawn Avenue to Crescent Road.

Animal lovers met pygmy goats, alpacas, camels, mini horses, reindeers and much more at the Petting Zoo. Dog shows were presented by Dogfather & Co and marshmallows were roasted over an open fire in Ramsden Park!: horse and wagon rides, live musical performances, and delicious $5 special menu items, face painting, photos with Santa, carousel rides, and much more were also present at this spectacular event!

We can’t wait for next year’s Cavalcade of Lights Festival!
