Put your popcorn down and pick your paddles up, because you can drift your way into some waterside concerts this summer. Instead of watching a show from a seat, you can enjoy some entertainment while floating in a boat. Surrounded by fresh air and scenic views, Toronto's floating concerts are the perfect summer treat.
Summer is one of the best times to be in Toronto, mostly because there are no blizzards keeping you indoors.
You can soak up the sun and warm air by heading to a unique concert series in the city this season.
Toronto Adventures is a kayak, canoe, and paddleboard venue, and it's hosting some riverside outdoor shows you can enjoy from a boat.
Set along the Humber River, you can catch live comedy, music, and even magic as you relax on the water.
The journey starts at the Humber Paddling Centre, where you'll hop into your kayak or canoe.
Then, you'll embark on your scenic paddle along the river to the show.
This month, you can see a Kalila Badali musical performance, two different comedians, and a magician.
Tickets range from $35 for a single kayak to $70 for a large canoe.
The prices include paddles, life jackets, and glow sticks. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes and to bring some blankets to keep you cozy on cooler evenings.
The venue also offers rentals for daytime paddles and adventures.
This isn't the only floating entertainment that's taking place in Toronto this summer.
A floating cinema is opening up this September, and you and your friends can watch from your own social distance boats.
If you're looking for more paddling adventures, you can check out some of these rivers near the 6ix that will bring you all the views.
Float your way over to these river shows for a whole 'yacht' of fun.
