Toronto Weekend Event Listing for March 18 - 20, 2016This work week has been a tough one and I for one am so happy that the weekend is here. Celebrate the end of winter and say goodbye to March break this weekend with lots of fun and exciting events and happenings in Toronto.
Here are my top picks for fun events and happenings across the city this weekend:
