Toronto’s frigid temperatures may be a blessing in disguise, as it provides the occasion for Torontonians to embark on winter adventures, right in the city. Here are a few fun winter activities to spice up the winter season.
Toronto Light Festival | Now through March 3, 2019
As described by the organizers, the Toronto Light Festival is “a new visual journey and an imaginative cerebral adventure”. The festival exhibits the creativity of local and international artists. It’s an unapologetic takeover of the distillery district, spanning across 13 acres and 44 buildings. Experience colours and shadows in creative ways, as these artists manipulate light in a wide variety of ways that light can be influenced.

Icebreakers | Now through February 24, 2019
Icebreakers is a series of large installations along Queen’s Quay, west of Yonge Street. Five separate sites host unique installations. Exhibits like these help the city awaken from hibernation. The installations are inviting and fun, providing many photo opportunities and admiration.

Skating – The Bentway | Now through February 18, 2019
A figure eight skating trail under The Gardner. A very Canadian way of spending a weekend afternoon. You may rent skates, or bring your own! Bring your warmest scarf, hats and mitts, and prepare for a gentle glide with your fellow Torontonians.
