Happy Wednesday Party Girls. It’s time to get out your day planners, because we’re about to help you plan out your weekend. Here’s a round up of the highlights in Toronto you should be pencilling into your agendas this week!
Movie Night in the Park
We’re all a little heartbroken over the news about Robin Williams passing away. I’ve already watched Mrs. Doubtfire five times this week. But if you’re like me and prepared to make it six, there’s a sweet little tribute night on Friday in Liberty Village Park. Bring your friends and neighbours and relive the classic with some laughs and more than a few tears. Check out their Facebook page for more info here.
First of all, if you’re feeling like some free thrills, this weekend is Toronto’s annual Buskerfest. That means Yonge St. becomes a celebration of street theatre. August 21-24 come downtown for comedy, daredevils, magicians, circus acts, music, and more. And the best part is that it’s all for a good cause. The whole party is organized by Epilepsy Toronto, raising awareness and a lot of hell – the best kind of event! Head to their website to get more details here.
We’ve been obsessing lately about taking in some new baking classes, and some of our faves are the ones offered at Le Dolic bakery on Dundas St W. This weekend there are still some spots left in the Doughnut baking class (Saturday 1-3pm $80) and the Cake Decorating and Design class (Sunday 10-1pm $129). You can get more info about the classes offered (and maybe make a date with us, because we’re making some room in our calendars for a few upcoming classes!) on their website here.
Canada’s Biggest Water Fight
Relive some childhood memories and join the crowd at Trinity Bellwoods Park on Saturday at 2pm for Canada’s Biggest Water Fight. Created by Improv in Toronto, there’s a ton of people armed with Nerf water guns, and a whole bunch more bringing water balloons and their own Supersoakers this weekend. Trying to beat the summer heat? Looks like you found your perfect afternoon. Head to their Facebook page to get more info.
Looking for some free community entertainment Saturday? We got a tip from Cityfest Toronto about this awesome (and free, did we say free?) event happening at Canoe Landing Park 4-10pm. There’s live music, family friendly activities, a beer garden (A BEER GARDEN!) and, my fave, delicious food. Head to their website to get the lineup of great performers, and invite your friends – what’s better than a free festival?
Looking for some leisurely shopping on Sunday? The answer should be of course, because the Annex Flea is back in the Honest Ed’s Lot on Sunday 11-6pm. That means there’s lemonade, vintage summer dresses, home decor, and pretty treasures waiting for you to stumble on. There’s nothing I like better than shopping on Sundays. Except maybe brunch. I do really love brunch.
