This weekend, Toronto has some great things planned to celebrate Canada Day.
Concerts, Cruises, Food & Fireworks!
While some people are lucky enough to flee the city for the long weekend, there are many, many people who enjoy the statutory holiday right in the heart of the city.
Mel Lastman Square is host to a special outdoor concert, put on by the city of Toronto. There will be music and dance performances for people to enjoy, all culminating with choreographed fireworks. Queen's Park also has family friendly activities planned, including face painting, inflatables, and games.
If you love the water, then head down to the Toronto harbour, where you will find special cruises. Take a cruise over lunch, supper or later in the evening and view the fireworks from Lake Ontario.
Foodies unite this weekend. There are food festivals to attend, or take it easy and enjoy sandwich catering in Toronto, where the food is brought to you. Avoid the crowds and heat by having the food prepared for you - all you have to do is sit back and eat.
Canada Day wouldn't be complete without taking in one of the many fireworks displays. In addition to the fireworks at Mel Lastman Square, there will fireworks at Canada's Wonderland, Downsview Park, and at Harbourfront Centre, just to name a few.
Let's Go Jays!
My personal favourite way to spend Canada Day is at a Blue Jays Game. I am a die-hard Jays fan and would love to see them replicate those back to back World Series wins. What's more Canadian than an afternoon at the ball game - it's a perfect way to spend time on Canada Day!
Happy Birthday Canada
It's going to be a great weekend full of fun and excitement in the city. Toronto will be buzzing the whole weekend, as people celebrate Canada's birthday!
Happy Canada Day, however you plan to spend it.
