Another Huge Holiday Celebration is Headed to Mississauga


It's official—Christmas is hitting Mississauga this weekend.

While you probably already know about the grand-scale tree lighting at Celebration Square and the Christmas market set to hit Streetsville, you might not have known that another huge holiday celebration is taking place in another cozy corner of the city.

Residents who live in or near Malton might want to know that on Sunday, Nov. 26, a major Christmas event involving Santa, a horse and carriage, free ice skating and a tree lighting is taking place at Paul Coffey Park.

The Malton BIA has been working with Ward 5 Councillor Carolyn Parrish to bring more awareness and events to Malton and is ringing in the holiday season with its North Pole-ooza.

As for what to expect, families with little ones might be happy to know that Santa will be on hand from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. to offer kids free rides around the park on his horse and carriage.

Attendees can also enjoy free ice skating from 1:45 to 3:15 and if they stick around, they can watch the lighting of Malton's brand new Christmas tree.

The tree lighting will take place at 4:45 p.m.

In terms of food, there will be complimentary hot chocolate and cookie decorating activities for children.

So if you aren't ready to stop celebrating the start of the holiday season on Saturday, be sure to check out the city's north end on Sunday to skate off some holiday snacks and check out another tree lighting.
