Toronto Weekend Events Listing for October 23 - 25, 2015The last few weeks have been really busy for me and this weekend is no exception. With a weekend jam-packed full of events squeezed between personal time with friends and my computer, I may need another weekend to recover from this one. And it all starts tonight as I with thousands of Torontians) cheer on the Blue Jays in the hope that they keep the World Series dream alive!
