It’s always right about this time when we realize how quickly the summer is passing! The August Civic Holiday is here and as always, in our vibrant city, there is a lot going on!
Tridel Presentation Centres will be open:
Saturday, Sunday & Monday: 12 Noon to 6 p.m.
Elsewhere in the city, the August Long Weekend is also the final weekend of the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival, with events scheduled throughout the city, culminating in the Grand Parade Saturday August 2nd and the Carnival Island event.
In addition to the Carribbean Carnival, there are plenty of other events scheduled throughout the city to keep you entertained. If you’re in the west end near the Old Mill Presentation Centre, Shakespeare in High Park is presenting “Titus Andronicus” and “As You Like It”. This is a really popular event and seating can go fast, so you may want to buy a premium ticket and get there early!
If you find yourself downtown at the Tridel Store, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. If the skies are clear, a tour up the CN Tower will offer stunning views. Or check out Ripley’s Aquarium. Doors will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily during the Civic Holiday weekend and visitors entering after 7 p.m. can save $5.00.
In Toronto’s east end, The Scarborough Ribfest returns August 1st through August 4th at Thomson Memorial Park (at the corner of Lawrence Ave. and Brimley Road), with live music and entertainment, midway rides, games, and vendors. And of course, plates of mouth watering ribs!
