Winter came early this year in Toronto, and the energy in the city always switches up so much when that happens! The first major snowfall officially marks a new way of life for Torontonians for the rest of the winter season. Here are 9 things to do in Toronto this weekend so that you have some stuff to look forward to.It's true that this can be a time of year where we don't really know how to feel about going out. The cold can make it easy to convince yourself to stay home and watch Netflix, and there's nothing wrong with that.\nHowever, this is a really magical time to go out and experience the buzz of the pre-holiday season. There's always a certain charm to this time of year. The Christmas Market is opening, and the city still has a bunch of cool exhibitions and festivals to check out that it would be a shame to miss.\nWe encourage you to make the most of what Toronto has to offer with some of these activities we're suggesting.

At 259 Lake Shore Blvd E, #LaurentGrasso’s neon sign Visibility is a Trap invokes Michel Foucault’s theory of panopticism, which argues that a state of permanent visibility induces self-discipline. The interplay between the viewer and text is key, as the viewer is increasingly visible the closer they are to the neon’s glow. Image: Laurent Grasso, Visibility is a Trap, 2012/2019.
