Family Fun Fair
Looking for something fun to do with the kids this Family Day?

There are endless fun activities in and around Toronto to keep the kids entertained and make family memories.

The Family Fun Fair is taking place at the Rogers Centre all weekend - carnival rides and games, junk food, vendors, and lots of indoor family fun.

Skating at Toronto City Hall

City Hall and Harbourfront Centre and most outdoor municipal rinks in the GTA are open for ice skating thanks to last week's deep freeze - strap on the skates, bundle up and head out for some free fun on the ice with the kids!

HarbourKIDS at Harbourfront offers skating performances, street dance competitions, concerts, and winter arts and culture from a kid's perspective as well as free public skating.

Also at Harbourfront, the PawsWay Pet Discovery Centre is open with doggie sports demos, magic shows, face painting and balloon artists, arts and crafts, games and prizes for the kids - all free!

Toronto's classic attractions including Fort York, Casa Loma, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Art Gallery of Ontario are all open and offering special family programming this Family Day.  The CN Tower is offering special admission prices for Family Day, and Riverdale Farm is a wonderful family outing and is always free.

The Toronto Zoo is always a fun family day out, and one of our family's all-time favourite field trip destinations. It may seem more like a summertime outing, but there's lots going on all year round at the Zoo - right now it's Winterfest, an annual event to celebrate and learn about polar bears (every kid's favourite zoo animal!)

Or try your local skating rink, tobogganing hill or hiking trail - bundle up in mittens, hats and scarves, pour a Thermos of hot chocolate and head out to enjoy this crisp, sunny Family Day long weekend.

Which of these fun things will we be doing this Family Day? None of them. We're on our way out the door as we speak to Eldest Son's all-day out-of-town soccer tournament.
