Another list of things to do this weekend in Toronto and… wait, how did we get to the middle of July? Time flies when you’re having fun, apparently! That’s what our dad used to say when we said we were bored on road trips. Then he’d throw a Barbie at us and tell us to entertain ourselves. Yeah, lots of fun.
Here are 8 of the best things to do this weekend in Toronto, besides play with Barbies in the back of a minivan!

The craziest Caribbean festival of the year is back! Hit the streets for dancers, parades, and all things Caribbean culture. Think we’d look good in a sparkly bikini?

Come out to enjoy a crap ton of music! There’ll be street fests, a weekend beach jazz run, a Latin carnival, and a block party! If you love jazz, great. If you don’t love jazz, you’ll still have a wicked time!
When: Friday, July 5- Sunday, July 28
