Toronto Christmas Market 2017

Since 2013, Damian and I have made a point of going to the Toronto Christmas Market together with our families.  We book a date that will make sense and head down for an afternoon of fun and Christmas cheer.  A typical visit includes a visit to Santa, some shopping, a few snacks, lots of photos, and a sit-down bite to eat.

This year, Susie and I had taken Hudson to see Santa earlier, so we came up with a new way to enjoy the market: a photo scavenger hunt!   We made a list, checked it twice, and made our way down to the market.  Here is our list of must-have shots to finish the scavenger hunt:

  • Shot of the big Christmas Tree
  • An ornament bigger than your head
  • Pink trees
  • A gingerbread house
  • A photo with a smiling elf
  • A photo with soup
  • The Big Heart
  • A shot with the Werthers display
  • A shot with the Ferrero booth
  • The #TCM17 hashtag
  • A picture of lights
  • A shot of an oversize present
  • A cask
  • A picture of some people carolling
  • The Ferris Wheel
  • The Carousel
  • A shot of an old vehicle
  • A picture of a disco ball
  • A shot with one of the performers 
  • A picture on the "merci" bench

Of course, you can mix up the above with any of your favourites.  We made up a prize for Hudson if he could find all of the shots on the list ... a $10 prize that he could shop for as we were on the hunt.

Here is a Flickr album with some of our favourite shots from this year:
