Canadian Tire Jumpstart Christmas Trail

Canadian Tire is inviting people to a multi-sensory drive-along Christmas Trail it has created at the site of Black Creek Pioneer Village at 1000 Murray Ross Parkway in North York.

The trail opened Nov. 18. The hours of operation are 5 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and 5 to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It is closed Mondays and Tuesdays. The event was originally intended to end in mid-December but because it sold out so quickly, Canadian Tire has extended it into the new year.

“As Canada’s Christmas Store, we’ve helped Canadians bring their most cherished Christmas traditions to life for nearly 100 years,” said TJ Flood, president, Canadian Tire Retail, in a news release. “Although Christmas will look a little different this year, it can still be magical, and Canadian Tire’s Christmas Trail will be just that by safely immersing guests in all the joy and festive fun of Christmas.”

The trail features a 1.5-km journey that people drive through. It features elves playing in the snow, a larger-than-life advent calendar with the season’s most desired toys, curated Christmas landscapes and thousands of lights.

At the end of the drive, guests can stop at a Christmas display where they can get a physically distant photo with Santa Claus.

Admission costs $25 per car. All proceeds support Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart Charities. Registration is required; spots are limited.
