In Markham's great holiday tradition, the 39th Markham Santa Claus parade and the 27th Festival of Lights was an outstanding success. The weather was fantastic and young and old came out to enjoy all the festivities. This year's Toy Mountain, sponsored by the Markham District Veteran’s Association and CTV news, collected over 600 toys during the parade! If you forgot to bring your new, unwrapped toy, it’s not too late. The shops on Main Street Markham will still be collecting toys until December 15. Let’s make Markham’s Toy Mountain the biggest yet!

Of course, one of the main highlights of the day was the 30’ Christmas tree lighting and fireworks which was the best yet! One visitor from Ottawa commented that it was one of the best shows he's ever seen, even better than Parliament Hill! Visitors to Main Street Markham this year enjoyed free pictures with Santa, ball hockey, free horse & wagon rides and our amazing fire artists, a chain-saw juggler and a lot more! Fun for everyone!
