What's Up Toronto

Bored in Toronto? Rarely.
With all the activities the city has to offer, the real challenge is really choosing or finding the time. If you live nearby, try any of the following :

Music - June to September
Free concerts at the Music Garden every Thursdays at 7 pm and Sundays at 4pm. This activity runs from June to September and features different instruments and music genre in every show. Scanning through this season's schedule I saw The Kirby String Quartet, Voices of Ancient China, Jazz, and the Cecilia String Quartet. www.harbourfrontcentre.com

Caribana officially starts on July 14 and ends on August 1 with the Caribana Parade. In between there are a lot of activities including a junior caribana and art exhibitions. More details.
