What you need to know: Oakville's Tree Lighting & Holiday Market


Downtown Oakville’s Centennial Square is the site for the annual free Tree Lighting Ceremony & Holiday Market between 7 and 9 p.m. Friday.

The event offers family entertainment, caroling, Santa, Christmas treats, an outdoor market, and of course the lighting of the tree.
