It's almost Christmas, and soon our days will be filled with feasting, wrapping paper, family, and friends. While laying by the fire in a deep turkey coma sounds very appealing, there are so many events happening around Toronto that you don't want to miss out on. Don't let your food baby hold you back from getting out and exploring the city this weekend. These 8 things to do in Toronto will let you enjoy your winter break to the fullest.

Get together with family and friends, and make some memories at these Toronto events.

You can keep the Christmas spirit going all weekend long with these wintry adventures.

Many festivals are ending after this weekend, so it's your last chance to experience the fun.

WinterFest and the Funhouse are both closing on December 31. You can wander through twinkling installations at both places, and of course, indulge in sweet treats at WinterFest.

If holiday cooking has you never wanting to enter your kitchen again, you can enjoy a meal and festive drinks at Jack Astor's new outdoor pop-up bar.

Sip on Clark's rum and eggnog in this over-the-top Christmas tent.
