9 Things To Do In Toronto This Weekend, October 25 To 27
The weekend's looking good, Toronto!
It's the final week of Halloween festivities before we jump into the Holiday season, and Toronto is full of activities as per usual. There are always tons of events all over the city, but it can be so hard to narrow them down. That's why we've compiled this list of 9 things to do in Toronto this weekend.
If you're just as excited about Halloween as we are, there are some great parties going on, and there's no doubt something for everyone. The best part of the Halloween build-up really is the final week when people start bringing out their costumes on the streets. It really shows the character and creativity of people in the city and is the best way to celebrate the change of seasons.
The party scene this week is looking good! Event planners, venues, and even hotels are all hopping on board to bring you something a little out of the ordinary from their regular programming.
Take this time to get spooky before that Holiday season starts to creep upon us. No matter what you choose to do this weekend, it will surely be spook-tacular.
