That’s Not All!

Don’t feel like you need to attend an official Family Day event, there are lots of other things you can do with your kids to make some memories. Movie theatres will be open and so will the Toronto Zoo. Ice skate on one of these outdoor ice rinks.

Many of these popular attractions are open to welcome families. Enjoy the great outdoors with a kid-approved hike through nature. Maybe some cross-country skiing? Or expend some energy tobogganing at these local hills.
