Ready for some serious entertainment? For the first time ever, the Red Bull Flugtag is coming to Toronto and thrill-seekers will compete in teams to take flight in their homemade flying machines.

This internationally renowned experience is FREE to attend and if you’ve never heard of it before, let us fill you in.

Participants are tasked with building their own handcrafted human-powered flying machines, which they will launch into the air off a 9-metre flight deck and into the waters of Lake Ontario.

The competitors are scored by a team of local celebrity judges on the creativity of their craft, their performance, and the distance of their flight.
