The event, which took place in front of the shared entrance to Hudson's Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, was a spectacular celebration for the city, complete with lights, fireworks and a very special musical performance by Mariah Carey. Hundreds gathered on Queen Street to ring in the holiday season and take in the magical window displays. The occasion marked the first joint window unveiling between Hudson's Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue and also the first-ever Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows in Canada. The Hudson's Bay windows along Queen Street are a tradition in the city of Toronto and this year, Saks joins in that tradition and offers a special fashion twist on the holidays. Hudson's Bay's Enchanted Forest windows along Queen and Saks Fifth Avenue's Land of 1000 Delights window displays along Queen and Yonge Street, each capture the holiday spirit in a unique and different way and will be sure to delight and entertain both the people of Toronto and the many tourists who visit the city throughout the season. Hudson's Bay's Enchanted Forest This year, Hudson's Bay's iconic holiday windows invite customers into an Enchanted Forest with five distinct windows along Queen Street. Each of the five animated windows depicts scenes of a winter wonderland filled with 34 hand-sculpted spirited holiday animals. Over 350 square feet of LED walls enhance each vignette. The flagship's façade will feature mixed garland, foliage, twinkling lights and cheerful holiday music, completing the magical display. "The holidays are such a magical time in the city," said Liz Rodbell, President, Hudson's Bay. "We know that visiting the windows along Queen Street has been a long-standing tradition for so many Torontonians. We are thrilled to unveil our five Enchanted Forest windows, which are sure to delight young and old alike." Set at various times throughout the day, each of the five windows showcase an imaginative fantasy of how friends and family in the forest spend the holidays. Bunnies ice-skating on a pond; mice frolicking atop a bear covered in snow, and a mother owl protecting her newborn babies are some of the scenarios passersby will encounter.
