The First Inverted Christmas Tree To Light Up The City

The complimentary holiday party, sponsored by Ricarda’s restaurant, will feature Toronto’s very first inverted Christmas tree. It’s all happening tomorrow in downtown Toronto! Over 500 Torontonians are expected to come participate in the Atrium Lights ceremony, a free and festive event made for the community. Ricarda’s has invited everyone to unplug for an evening and bask in all the Christmas vibes. The entire space is a whole 15,000 square feet and will be decorated for the occasion. The event will take place at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, November 29th, in the atrium at 134 Peter Street.

Ricarda’s is a Mediterranian inspired restaurant and bakery located in the downtown core of Toronto. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and also features famous Sunday Live Jazz Brunch, takeout, office catering and events.

The event will be providing mulled wine (a holiday favorite), hot chocolate, gingerbread, handbell ringers, gingerbread goodies and to top it off, Santa will be joining the party. There will also be a 50-person choir bringing holiday cheer. 

“At Ricarda’s, we love tradition, but we also love having a little fun,” said Chris Glaessel, Chief Operating Officer at Ricarda’s. “This year, as we planned for the highly anticipated Atrium Lights, we wanted to incorporate the top Christmas trends for 2017 and we fell in love with the idea of a strong icon for Christmas being utilized in a unique, fun and entertaining way.”

The Atrium Lights event has one goal: to bring together the community to celebrate the holiday season in a way that many of us have forgotten.

The ‘upside-down’ Christmas tree is also trending across the United States and the United Kingdom. “Through the hustle, distractions, and chaos that often defines the typical downtown core, our goal for Atrium Lights is to be your escape and to be the passageway to re-connecting with Christmas,” said Glaessel.
