Get the red and white flags and any other patriotic memorabilia you can possibly fit on your body because IT'S CANADA DAY THIS FRIDAY! Beaver tattoos on the face are highly encouraged but don't blame us if you get one by accident that's permanent. And because we are so blessed to live in such an unreal country, it's only natural that some people will want to celebrate all that Canada is! Which seems like it would need more than a day, but we're still talking to Trudeau about that.
There's so many amazing ways to celebrate Canada Day (hello fireworks!), but for some of us we still want to be able to check out some of our favourite Toronto spots. Here's a list of what will be open and closed this Canada Day. Make sure to call ahead to some of your more intimate local spots though, as they may have tweaked their hours!
