It’s time to light up the square once again! Yes that’s right, it’s November and that means Christmas is so close you can almost smell the eggnog!

Well the best way to start the season, is with the Light Up The Square event at Celebration Square, and this year’s showcase takes place on November 24th at 5PM.

The live music and ice skating kicks-off at 5, while the actual lighting of the tree doesn’t occur until 7PM. However there’s plenty of reason to get to the Square earlier, because the amazing Holiday Market is active from 3PM! You can see the entire schedule for the day, below!

As you can see, it’s set to be a lively day at Celebration Square, for an event that attracts thousands of Mississauga natives every year! You won’t want to miss out on the start of the Christmas season, and there truly is no better way to start proceedings than with a hot chocolate from the market, and your friends or family by your side!
