Mississauga kicks off holiday season with Light Up the Square ceremony on Saturday

The City is bringing some sparkle and shine to Mississauga this holiday season with a festival of lights.

Starting on Saturday, Celebration Square will get a glow-up of dazzling light displays, four artwork instillations and the inaugural lighting of a 40-foot Christmas tree.

Light Up the Square gets underway at 7:45 p.m. with a ceremony led by Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie and will feature food vendors, special guests and artists including members of the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra.

A planned ice-skating rink had to be postponed due to warm weather, but the city has instead opted to have a one-day only roller rink from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Attendees can bring their own roller skates and helmets and there will also be a limited availability or rentals onsite.

The Celebration Square ice rink is scheduled to open on Dec. 3 and will be open daily for free public use depending on the weather.

Guests will not need to show vaccine certificates to participate in the event, but spectators are urged to wear masks and practice social distancing.

This year’s opening event will also be live streamed for those who want to join the celebration from the comfort of their homes. Last year’s opening ceremony wasn’t open to the public last year due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

The Celebration Square ice rink will open on Dec. 3 and is free for public use and open daily, weather permitting.

Light Up the Square runs from November 20 to January 2. For more information
