On Saturday, November 15, the Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Area (BYBIA) will kick off the holiday season with Holiday Magic, the spectacular annual community free concert event in support of the Canadian Foundation For Aids Research (CANFAR).
Between 5pm – 6:30pm, families, friends and music lovers are invited to the Village of Yorkville Park for the Official “Flick the Switch” Lighting Ceremony and a special performance by Molly Johnson. Back by popular demand after a stand-out Holiday Magic performance in 2011, the Juno Award winning jazz vocalist will ring in the holidays with the Bloor-Yorkville community performing songs from her new album “Because of Billie”, an album of Billie Holiday songs that plays homage to the iconic jazz singer. The evening’s musical entertainment will start with a performance by folk rock artist Andrew Austin.
The BYBIA will transform the Village of Yorkville Park and Bloor Street into a dazzling display of lights shining bright throughout the neighbourhood. In addition to the Christmas tree located in the Village of Yorkville Park, a 20-foot tree glowing with an LED light display will sit outside the ROM at Avenue Road and Bloor Street. Patrons of the neighbourhood can look forward to shopping, dining and enjoying the attractions this year surrounded by festive lighting along the tree-lined streets.
