My daughter Roo and I were discussing this morning what we want to do this weekend..there are several FREE things we could do. One of the benefits of living in the big city is the abudance of FREE things to do!
One of my favortie summer time events is the Beaches Jazz Festival. It is this weekend. If you are going to it may I suggest you pack a lunch as if you want to eat at one of the restraunts in the area, you have a LONG wait to get in. As well dont forget to bring a blanket, as the festival is so close to the water it might be great to make a day of it and hit the beach and not just Queen St where most of the action is.
One site I check for great kids activites all summer long is kidsummer.com .Tonight there is a great free event The Ben Show, tomorrow 2 kids can get in FREE at the Toronto Zoo with a $20 adult admission.
If you like ballet there is Ballet in the park,they are doing Cinderella at Etienne Brulé Park July 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.
If you like things from the SouthEast Asia then you want to get to Masala! Mehndi! Masti! down on the Exhibtion Grounds. There are over 80 free events and lots of great music.
And if you are out in Brampton there is always Summerfest at Gage Park on Sat and Sunday.
Isnt there lots to do on the CHEAP! Roo and I have been trying to figure out what we are doing. On Sat Roo is going to a birthday party( her gift for Birthday boy is movies passes that I got for FREE, how is that for a cheap present). Then sat eve I do think we will go down to the Beaches for an hour or so. After church on Sunday we may go to the ballet in the park which I would think would be a great way to bring ballet to a lil girl.
Well time to go, it is a hot day here in Toronto so we are headed to one of the many FREE pools that Toronto offers thru parks and rec for an enjoyable afternoon in the water and sun.
