Emery Village BIA Executive Director's message - Dec 2018

The holiday season is upon us and the frenzy in the stores and our homes has begun. At times it is hard to balance work, family and events, but with some organization and last minute runs, everything gets done to create the perfect atmosphere with those we love.

A couple of family events being held in Toronto during the holiday season are:

Venus Winter Market

Venus Fest is hosting its first Winter Market which showcases local businesses run by and supporting women and non-binary folks.

Local, hand-crafted goods, made with love, will warm up your seasonal gatherings.

Lula Lounge, December 16, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Holiday Fair in the Square

In the heart of Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square, the Holiday Fair in the Square runs December 1 to 23.

Combining the charm and elegance of a Christmas market with the excitement and allure of a thriving winter carnival, Fair in the Square is a new favourite Toronto holiday tradition.

Whether you’re shopping for that unique, perfect gift, taking the family out for an afternoon of skating, rides and games, stopping by for a quick lunch and some seasonal treats, or enjoying an evening drink at the Jackson Triggs Wine Bar, Holiday Fair in the Square has festive fun for everyone.

December 1 to 23 (closed Mondays)

Tuesday to Thursday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Friday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Closing: 6 p.m. on Dec. 23rd

A Point to Ponder with Poinsettias and Pets

For those of you sharing homes with pets, please note that there are some toxic plants that can harm your furry friends.

Be aware that poinsettias, holly, mistletoe, Christmas cactus and of course the Christmas tree can harm your pets if ingested.

Of course, please enjoy your holiday, stay safe, think of those around you and more importantly do not drink and drive.

If you choose to drink, please have a designated driver or call a car.

The Emery Village BIA would like to wish everyone a safe and happy time full of great moments.
