The Bloor-Yorkville BIA's Holiday Magic sets a festive mood for visitors with thousands of LED light-displays throughout the Bloor-Yorkville area during the season. Their beautiful 'Winter tree' is located outside of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) this year, standing nearly 7 metres tall on its base and  made up of 5000 energy efficient, LED lights, which glow and brighten the long, darks days of winter.

We'd love to see your pics!  Share them with @ROMToronto.
