Toronto Weekend Events Listing for April 1 - 3, 2016It's been a long week for me, so I'm very happy that the weekend is here. I've been fighting a cold this whole week, which is why I haven't posted anything lately (so sorry). But now that I'm feeling better I have plenty of choices of some great things happening in Toronto this weekend.
