Well, you finished the semester and have a few weeks off. Congratulations!
If you are spending the break in Toronto, there is lots going on to keep you busy – and for not much money.
The Bentway skate trail opened for the season this past weekend. Free and open to the public, if you don’t have a pair of skates you can rent them there. Every Thursday starting this week, from 5 to 9 p.m., you can rent skates for free and even get a quick lesson!
This time of year is great to see beautiful holiday displays in store windows. The Bay, Saks and Holt Renfrew downtown never disappoint. The windows of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre have pieces from eight local artists by its Front Street entrance.
See all the sparkles
Between now and December 31, a tunnel made of 14 MILLION SEQUINS can be found at Yonge and St. Clair – 1501 Yonge St., behind Shoppers Drug Mart. It doesn’t get more Instagrammable than that.
If lights are more your thing, now through March at Ontario Place is the Winter Light Exhibition, a free showcase of 18 art installations.
Visit a winter village
The Evergreen Winter Village is open Dec. 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Dec. 26-31 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eat delicious food, find cool gifts for friends/family (or yourself), or go for a skate. You can catch a free shuttle bus there from Broadview Station.
New Year’s Eve
Happy holidays, Humber! See you in 2019.
