Don’t miss out on this fun family event in Downtown Orillia! Bring the family to The Annual Downtown Children’s Candlelight Parade and Tree Lighting set for Friday November 17 in Downtown Orillia, beginning at the Royal Canadian Legion at 215 Mississaga St E. Hundreds of children will gather in the Legion parking lot at 6:30 pm and each child will be given a battery operated candle to walk up the main street at 6:45 pm singing carols with the Town Crier leading the way to the Orillia Opera House.

The parade will make its way past 20 thousand lights on the main street which will be lit up for the Christmas season. The crowd will then gather at the Orillia Opera House surrounding the giant Christmas tree for the countdown as a representative of Orillia Power Corp, who generously sponsors the lights each year, flicks the switch on more than 12 thousand lights.
Enjoy free hot chocolate compliments of the The Salvation Army Orillia and delicious sugar cookies donated by Mariposa Market to celebrate the spirit of the holiday with this annual tradition. Don’t forget to meet Santa and have your picture taken with him!
