Tree-lighting at St. Clement’s parkette draws hundreds

More than 200 people turned out to see the tree festooned with thousands of lights at the tree-lighting hosted by the Uptown Yonge BIA, on Nov. 24.

It was the seventh annual spectacle in the parkette at St. Clement’s Avenue and Yonge Street.

Girls from St. Clement’s School sang Christmas songs, musicians performed, Santa Claus made and 400 short-bread cookies were devoured.

Hot chocolate was provided for all by local vendor Himalayan Java House.
