Lots to do at Yonge-Dundas Square this weekend

City Centre Mirror

Yonge-Dundas Square is getting into the holiday spirit with the launch of the Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Campaign on Friday, Nov. 30 and the Downtown Yonge BIA’s Kidzfest on Saturday, Dec. 1.

The Salvation Army will take over the square from noon until 8 p.m. on Friday, handing out free jingle bells, hot chocolate, coffee and other treats in front of an enormous three-storey bell.

The Salvation Army will launch its Christmas Campaign with bell ringers and donation kettles, and will help launch the CTV Toy Mountain campaign at 6 p.m.

The Salvation Army Youth Brass Band and Festive Singers will lead the crowd in a sing-along starting at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, Yonge-Dundas Square will become a Winter Wonderland for kids with live performances, dance-along and popular children’s characters dropping by for a day of fun.

Entertainers include magic by Rick Rossini, live demonstrations with birds of prey, a craft station, free games and more.

Characters on hand will include Strawberry Shortcake, Puss in Boots, the minions from Despicable Me and more.

Youngsters can hop on a train ride or Chilly Willy ride or get their faces painted for a $2 donation, with proceeds going toward Raising the Roof.

Kidzfest will run from 11 a.m. through 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1. For more information, visit www.wintermagic.ca/kidzfest
