JULLY BLACK IN CONCERT – HOLIDAY MAGIC
NOVEMBER 14, 2015 5 - 6:30 PM
Village of Yorkville Park
Bloor-Yorkville BIA switches on the festive season with Holiday Magic on Saturday, November 14th, with the Annual Lighting Ceremony, and a special performance by Canadian’s Queen of R&B/Soul, Jully Black. The extravagant annual community concert is a FREE EVENT and supports the Canadian Foundation For Aids Research (CANFAR).
Between 5 and 6:30 p.m., families, friends and music lovers are invited to the Village of Yorkville Park where personalities from Global Toronto’s “The Morning Show” will preside over the official “Flick the Switch” Lighting Ceremony. Canadian-born Jully Black will deliver an incomparable and unrivaled performance both visually and sonically. Exuding unparalleled levels of energy, enthusiasm, and undeniable vocal talent, she is guaranteed to move the body, mind and soul of audience members of any age.
Refreshments will be available for a small donation to CANFAR. Cash and cheque donations are welcome in support of CANFAR, as representatives from our chartable partner will be on-site at the BYBIA tent.
A yearly tradition, Holiday Magic combines a festive spectacle, community spirit, and energizing music, all while supporting an important cause. Bloor-Yorkville BIA is delighted to showcase what the area has to offer during the holidays, as the public enjoys the cheery lights, brilliant Christmas tree and flittering storefronts alongside the explosive appearance of our featured performer, Jully Black.
The BYBIA will transform the Village of Yorkville Park and Bloor Street into a dazzling display of lights shining brightly throughout the neighbourhood. In addition to the Christmas tree located in the Village of Yorkville Park, a 20-foot tree glowing with an LED light display will sit outside the ROM at Avenue Road and Bloor Street. Patrons can look forward to shopping, dining and enjoying the attractions this year surrounded by festive lighting along the tree-lined streets.
