We kicked off the Holiday Season by spreading joy and Christmas cheer in our community with our 2nd  Christmas Market and Walking Parade.

Through our Pay What You Can tickets we were able to raise just over $5000 which will allow us to by a month of fresh food for our Food Hub! Thank you Willowdale! 

The Market included 45+ local artisans, free hot chocolate, food trucks and live entertainment!

The Walking Parade left at 7:30pm from the Church and ended at Mel Lastman Square 

Featuring performances from the Yorkminstrel Show Choir, Haois International Choir, Marcus Schwan, Starship Experience and more!
