Things To Do in Toronto this Weekend (October 21st - October 23rd)

Wow it’s been cold these past couple of days; some of us were looking forward to the mild temperatures of mid-October, but we didn’t expect it to be this cold until the end of November (was hoping to go to the Christmas Market in this temperature, not be shopping for Halloween costumes!). Nonetheless, there are still plenty of things to do in Toronto as the weather cools down, and here are our picks for the best things to do this weekend!
