Spring is in the air and that means the outdoor events are starting up. Here is this week’s wrap up of what to do in Toronto this weekend with the family!
Five things to do Toronto this weekend
Spring Bird Festival
May 12, 2018
Bring along your binoculars and your hiking boots and go birdwatching in the city’s beautiful Tommy Thompson Park. There have been 318 native species recorded to date at the park. Get in on all the bird activities; hiking, learn about migration, bike the trails and find out how to attract bird to your own backyard.
Toronto Comic Arts Festival
On Saturday, May 12 & 13
the Toronto Comic Arts Festival is hosting Kids Art Day at St.Paul’s. Bring along your favourite comic books, or pick up a few new ones. The event bring together award winning illustrators, animators and creators participating in demonstrations, speaking and signing comic books.
Contact Photography Festival
Superheroes. Dreamers. Changers.
May 1-31, Hey Kiddo, 365 Roncesvalles
All month long, in various locations around Toronto, photographers will be sharing their work. One exhibition that looks of particular interest is specifically about children. Melanie Gordon’s photos focus on capturing the magic of childhood through play and creativity, activated by a child’s natural inclination to imagine and be curious.
Science Rendezvous at the Toronto Zoo
Sciences come to life at the Toronto Zoo. Participate in hands-on science activities and presentations by the students and scientists from the University of Toronto Scarborough in partnership with the Toronto Zoo and Let’s Talk Science. Join us for a zoo-wide scavenger hunt: solve clues hidden throughout the different stations and learn all about birds, bugs, bears and beautiful biodiversity.
Get your hands dirty
It’s time to get outside and get digging in the dirt. Stock up on yard waste bags and clean out the garden. With the warmer weather garden centres will be busy this weekend. There are few things more rewarding then spending the day in the garden with the kids.
