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.

Go skating

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!

You can also skate for free at Nathan Phillips Square and Harbourfront Centre. And Colonel Sam Smith Park, close to Lakeshore Campus, has a great skate rink.

Window shopping

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.

It’s lit

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

Bundle up if you plan to ring in the New Year at Nathan Phillips Square. Enjoy free performances, skating and a fireworks show at midnight. Bonus: the TTC is free all night!

Happy holidays, Humber! See you in 2019.
