It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Toronto

The Distillery District's Toronto Christmas Market

A couple of the city's big Christmas traditions begin today.

The Distillery District's Christmas Market opens today and they're promising more lights, food, gifts, magic and Santa this year.

But don't forget, you'll pay a bit more too if you visit on Friday nights or on the weekend.

Entry is free during the week but starting Friday at 6 p.m. it'll cost you $8 if you buy a ticket online in advance or $12 if you buy same-day.

The market will be open daily through December 22nd.

That's not the only way Toronto is getting into the spirit.

Hudson's Bay unveiled its holiday window display this morning.


The store is holding a big event tonight at 5:30.

There will be music and a charity competition with Canadian singer-songwriter Johnny Orlando and others.

The Eaton Centre will also unveil its' more than 100 foot tall Christmas Tree.

And of course, the Santa Claus Parade is this Sunday.
