Seasonal Lights Night Walk 2017, December 16th

December 9th, 2017

Firstly, apologies for not posting about the December 2nd walk – it was a last minute decision to do a leaderless walk rather than cancel it.

As is the tradition now, Vicki is organising our Seasonal Lights night walk:

Meet 5PM – Sheraton Hotel Lobby (Queen St across from City Hall). We’ll be near the glass enclosed waterfall behind the escalators.

NOTE: meet time changed to 5pm

It’s that time of year again. We will, as per usual, be winding our way to view downtown Toronto’s out-door and in-door delightful seasonal light displays. There will be areas of repeat for some, but will be new to more current members. All in all, it will be a time of get together. Let’s hope for snow, as it makes it all so much prettier. Somewhat of a map, meeting place and end pub location to come.
