TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Ho! Ho! Ho! Toronto Eaton Centre kicks off the holiday season announcing a joyous line-up of family fun set to unveil November 28th. From Santa's Log Cabin and a new tree maze to an urban lodge decked with warm tidings; this year Toronto Eaton Centre provides a must see and do list for the entire family.
Santa is sure to stay warm inside Timber Block's R-30 insulated, custom-built log cabin designed especially for this very jolly North Pole tenant. Watch the magic of Christmas come alive in the twinkle of children's eyes, where wishes can come true and for parents too, who wish for a custom Timber Block log cabin home of their own. Whether warming up at the yuletide fire or creating a work of art, Santa's Log Cabin is set to be a hub of fun activities for both kids and their parents alike. Scheduled visits with Santa can be arranged at torontoeatoncentre.com and parents are welcome to visit the new Timber Block Model Homes in Innisfil.
The Urban Lodge at Trinity Way will bring the holiday spirit to the Canadian retail experience. The lounge will feature a relaxing digital fire, comfy seating, free Wi-Fi and complimentary charging stations.
This year sees the addition of a Christmas Tree Maze, an exciting outdoor activation featuring a fun arrangement of over 200 pine trees ready to be explored. What's more, Toronto Eaton Centre will celebrate the opening of the maze, with a host of notable friends who will gather in the Christmas Village to unveil their own uniquely decorated tree. The creations will remain on display at the maze for visitors from far and wide to enjoy.
"Toronto Eaton Centre invites you to join us this upcoming holiday season as we share in the joy of Christmas, with the exciting launch of our 2014 Christmas Village.
