Drive-Thru Food Festival

The event is taking place in the parking lot of Church on the Queensway, Etobicoke (across from IKEA). Check out their website for more details.
Spend a day with nature and animals. The zoo offers a variety of attractions, adventures, and wild encounters. Visitors can view a variety of animals from all over the world. Tickets must be pre-booked online.
Indigenous Learning Centre
Learn more about the Indigenous culture. Named Wigwam Chi-Chemung, the learning centre is a houseboat that’s situated at the Ontario Place marina. The centre within the houseboat offers visitors a chance to engage and educate themselves about Toronto’s Indigenous history and culture.
How about some roller skating? Head over to Retro Rolla at The Bentway, where you can rent skates by the hour and indulge in a bit of outdoor fun. There are multiple time slots available for the week and more details can be found online.
Get your workout for the day and explore the city at the same time. The weekend event is a great way to experience the outdoors via walking, cycling or running. As such, portions of major roads are blocked off as well so people can go out and get active. The list of road closures for this weekend can be found here.
