People give their time to Cavalcade of Lights
Toronto Special Events - Volunteers generously donate their time to Cavalcade
of Lights presented by Scotiabank. This month-long series of events benefits
from this dedication as the volunteers ensure the programming runs smoothly and
remains fun for all.

Toronto Special Events volunteers fill key positions at our year-round
festivals and events providing a sense of warm community spirit. Currently,
there is a team of more than 1,000 volunteers with very diverse backgrounds -
from service clubs to cultural groups - coming together to celebrate our city
and actively participate in their neighbourhood.

Toronto Special Events is proud to receive the support of:

City of Toronto, Parks & Recreation Volunteer Leadership Program
Montage Support Services

The winner of two 2003 International Special Events Society Esprit Awards,
Cavalcade of Lights presented by Scotiabank returns as one of the city's most
stunning collection of free holiday events. Toronto's spectacular month-long
calendar of activity launches at Nathan Phillips Square with the family
favourite Cavalcade of Lights First Lighting Celebration on Saturday, November
29, and ends in the same location with the live telecast of Citytv's
Traditional New Year's Eve Bash on Wednesday, December 31.

Admission to Cavalcade of Lights is FREE and getting there couldn't be easier!
