October is always an extended party for folks in Toronto. The party will not stop as long as the weather permits it! October isn’t necessarily the coldest month, in fact, it’s a small blip for how powerful the weather can be, so the citizens look to soak up as much of the milder weather as possible. Here are some ways they do that!
From October 12 to October 14, 2019, this free event is something for everyone in the family to do. Don’t forget- this is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, so the long weekend means you can definitely unwind and enjoy the full Toronto Pumpkinfest Activities include pumpkin carving, food vendors, pumpkin bowling and many other games. This is something you don’t want to miss out on. Event is at Downsview Park on Carl Hall Road.
If you’re not so much of a pumpkin enthusiast then you can go to a more general event for a variety of more fun. The 172nd Annual Woodbridge Fall Fair is happening on the same weekend, October 12 to October 14, and is an event that the entire family can enjoy, as well! Tickets are $14 for adults, $5 for youth, and children under six years of age get free entry. While pumpkins are still involved you can be certain there will also be a horse show, a dog show, the petting zoo and other fun small challenges and activities.
