The weekend is about to kick off and you may be looking to make some plans. If you're still unsure of what fun stuff there is to do, check out our roundup of things to do in Toronto this weekend. It's time to explore what the city has to offer.
We are (hopefully) winding down the winter season in the 6ix, but even if temperatures stay chilly this weekend, there's so much on offer.First up, the area's own Tory Lanez (and friends) will be putting on a show at the Coca-Cola Coliseum, so grab your tickets fast. There are also tons of art events and some fun shopping you should check out. If you want to see something particularly unusual, though, Hot Docs is bringing back the super popular CatVideoFest. In case you're wondering, that is exactly what it sounds like: a screening of great cat videos. Basically, whatever you feel like doing this weekend, Toronto has got a little bit of everything.
