Mayor John Tory was joined by Santa himself as they counted down from 10 to ceremonially light the 51-foot tall White Spruce Christmas Tree, designed by Parfums Christian Dior, and declared the 2022 Distillery Winter Village, Toronto, officially open.
The majestic Christmas tree serves as The Distillery Winter Village centerpiece located in Trinity Square, and is decorated with 70,000 twinkling lights, 1,700 shiny and matte gold balls, 400 custom midnight blue ornaments, and features 1,000 custom Dior star charms.
“The Distillery Historic District wants to thank the dedicated team at Parfums Christian Dior for making magic happen,” said Rik Ocvirk, Vice President, The Distillery Restaurants Corp. and Director, Experiences and Events, The Distillery Historic District. “If there’s one photo everyone will be taking when they visit The Distillery Winter Village, it will be a photo of this shimmering masterpiece.”
The Distillery Winter Village runs now until December 31, and is widely regarded as Canada’s premier holiday market, drawing visitors from around the world.
