Friday Harbour Resort is delighted to announce its magical Tree Lighting Ceremony this Saturday, Nov. 26 at 5 p.m. The event will launch a season of holiday festivities at the European style, outdoor Christmas Market, which opens on Nov. 25 and runs until Dec. 23.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will embrace the festive spirit with a stunning 40-foot tree and a kaleidescope of colours and seasonal decor. Hosted by Canadian television personality Michelle Jobin, visitors will be treated to a live musical performance by internationally celebrated Canadian musician, Karl Wolf. He is a singer, songwriter and producer who has released five certified Gold singles in addition to his 4x Platinum international hit, Africa.

Other special guests in attendance will include the Innisfil Minor Hockey Association, who will assist in the official tree lighting countdown.

Visitors to the Tree Lighting Ceremony can arrive early and enjoy Christmas Market offerings; shop chalet-style cabins offering festive treats and gifts by local vendors, sing along with carollers, cozy up in warming huts, and take pictures with Santa and his elves.

Friday Harbour will also be accepting unwrapped toy donations for Innisfil’s Christmas 4 Kids Toy Drive at the Piazza and Sweet Harbour Toy and Candy Co located on the Promenade.

Admission and parking for both the Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Christmas Market are free.
