5 Holiday Events To Check Out in Toronto!

I am heading back to Toronto for the holidays!

It will be my first Christmas at home with my parents in close to four years, so I’m super excited to do ALL the holiday things in the city. Here’s what’s on my radar:

1) The Toronto Christmas Market

This is one of my all-time ‘get in the holiday spirit’ Christmas market. I love going at night and seeing all the lights twinkle at this market in The Distillery District. There are lots of warm beverages and refreshments for sale to keep you warm. If it gets too chilly, pop into a gallery to see some local art or into a restaurant for a glass of wine.

It’s worth a second visit during the day if you can swing it! The vibe is more family-like with lots of fun photo ops. Don’t forget to pop into all the local shops and visit the booths for a little Christmas shopping.

It’s not everyday that one gets to spend an evening on a ship, let alone a pirate ship.

And why was I on a ship you ask? Because there be treasures onboard – a pirate’s booty of seafood. The Captain’s Boil was celebrating the launch of a few new menu items and we were welcomed aboard to sample them. (more…)
