Toronto Events Listing for July 10 - 12, 2015Another weekend is upon us and this one is an action packed one that is the beginning of several weeks of amazing events happening across Toronto. The Pan Am games start today on Friday with nearly 7000 athletes converging on the city from across the Americas and the Caribbean. The Province of Ontario, Toronto, and other corporations have some amazing events and activities for everyone to enjoy! And if you want to avoid all the PANdemonium (yes I went there), there's plenty of other taking place across the city.
Here are my top picks for things to do in Toronto this weekend (and hopefully I'll see you there)!:
The Pan Am Games opening ceremony is Friday at 5pm at the Rogers Centre. The Games run until July 26 with many tickets available to several sporting events.
Party on The Block is a free three day party inspired by neighbourhoods from around the world down at The Harbourfront Centre.
If you feel like getting your heart racing or just to kick back and enjoy the best of Ontario, then join thousands at Ontario's Celebration Zone at the Harbourfront. There will be daily live entertainment, children's programming, zip-lining, and a rock climbing wall and adrenaline jump. Um adrenaline jump?! I'm there! Begins July 10 and runs until August 16, 2015.
