The COVID-19 pandemic has caused several closures in Brampton and now, the closure of the city’s Christmas Market is the latest one being added to the list.
Based on the recommendations of Peel Public Health, the City of Brampton will be cancelling this year’s Christmas Market that was scheduled for November 20-22.
The City of Brampton will consult with Peel Public Health and Market vendors to reschedule this event to a later date if it’s declared safe to do so.
Before the cancellation, the market planned on running safely and adhering to COVID-19 protocols, however, with cases surging and new safety measures from the government of Ontario and Peel Public Health, they have asked the public to “do the right thing and stay home.”
On a positive note, there will still be a virtual Tree Lighting and Santa Claus Parade.
The Winter Lights Festival may look different this year, but you can still find ways to celebrate safely.
