GreekTown on the Danforth illuminates as part of Cavalcade of Lights
  
What: GreekTown on the Danforth celebrates the inaugural lighting of two new
energy efficient LED holiday lighting displays. The display includes a
magnificent waterfall, created from blue lights, standing over two metres high
and eight metres wide at Alexander the Great Parkette at Logan and Danforth
Avenues. Seven large trees surrounding the parkette will be decorated in blue
and white lights.

This illumination celebration begins at 6 p.m. with a performance by the All
Saints Greek Orthodox Church Choir and speeches. The public is invited to
participate in the festivities and will be offered free hot chocolate and
cookies.

When: Saturday, November 20, 6 p.m.

Where: Alexander the Great Parkette
Northeast corner of Danforth and Logan Avenues

Why: As part of the 38th annual Cavalcade of Lights presented by Scotiabank,
the City of Toronto is working with BIAs (Business Improvement Areas) in seven
of Toronto's famous neighbourhoods to profile Toronto's growing reputation as
one of the hottest shopping destinations in North America. This innovative
partnership includes the creation of specially designed energy-efficient
neighbourhood lighting displays and the launch of a hop-on, hop-off guided bus
tour conveniently linking the shopping, dining and entertainment experiences
offered by each of the participating neighbourhoods.
