If you want to celebrate the holiday season in one of Mississauga’s oldest and best-known neighbourhoods, you might get to do so with hundreds of other people. 

Heart Comonos, a grassroots organization that aims to connect people in Mississauga’s Cooksville neighbourhood, recently announced it’s hosting its free Magical Holiday Season Celebration in the Four Corners area (10 Dundas St. E.) on Saturday, Dec. 3.

The event, which will take place right near the brand new Cooksville sign, will run from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. 

In a news release, Heart Comonos called the upcoming celebration its “biggest event of the year,” adding that the gathering will celebrate “peace, love and hope.”

According to the news release, there will be live music, singing, dancing, food, drinks, family-friendly activities and special guests. 

Some performers will include drummer Costa Chatzis, the Five and Tens Band, the Sawan Kanota Band, the Villancicos Band and the Latin Train Band.

Some local leaders are also slated to appear, including Ward 7 Councillor Dipika Damerla and Mississauga East-Cooksville MPP Kaleed Rasheed.

The organization said it expects anywhere from 250-500 people to attend. 

Attendees are also encouraged to bring new and gently used winter goods such as sleeping bags, hats, and scarves to the event. The donations will be given to local residents in need.  

“Come join us for a truly lovely evening filled with music, dancing, candle lighting, singing, conversations, lights, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cookies and much more,” the event listing reads. 

“The holiday season is such a memorable time of the year–a heartwarming time for people to join together and share hope, peace, and love.”
