Free Family Day Activites in Toronto

February 19, 2011

Are you still looking for something to do this weekend in Toronto? It is a long weekend here as we celebrate Family Day and there are many great free or low cost activities you can do with your family. Here are some of the ones that looked great  to us:

Riverdale Farm has always been a family favorite of ours. Rachel when she was younger loved  exploring this in the city farm.

Family Day at the TIFF Bell Lighthouse is on both Sunday and Monday. A great way to catch a flick, or enjoy the exhibitions and activities they will have.

The National Film Board is also hosting a free Family Day on Monday. There is free animation fun on Monday but you do have to register for the workshops, otherwise there will be screenings, and a digital scavenger hunt you can enjoy. There will also be a pixilation workshop you can get in on every hour on the hour.

The Winter Apple Ball on Family Day celebrates the apple with an attempt to break a world record for the most people apple bobbing. Looks like they have a long list of activities to celebrate the apple.

The city of Toronto is hosting events on Family Day at 4 locations from noon to 4 pm. There will be dance, street theater, games and so much more.

Down in the Beaches the Beach BIA is hosting its 4th Annual Family Day with a load of free activities. Everything from chocolate tasting, to games, face painting and the works.

Down on the Harbourfront there  will be lots of great activities as well and rumor has it maybe a few Olympians to meet and greet?

You can even go fishing without a license as it is Family Fishing Weekend. You are allowed to fish anywhere fishing is permitted.

Love the outdoors? You can take a free guided walk in Rouge Park.

In the Bloor- Yorkville Area there is the Icefest on both Sunday and Monday. Think ice sculptures and a circus theme.

All of these are great ways to spend time with your family this weekend here in Toronto.

So what are your plans for the long weekend?
