Toronto Municipal Election Day
I am not telling you what to do but this is a friendly reminder that we are very fortunate that we have the power to vote! This is going to be a very exciting day for our city as the world will be watching to see who will be our new leader!
Our city explodes with excitement as Halloween lands on a Friday this year; so that means the party will happen all weekend long! A reminder that Church Street shuts down for the city’s biggest costume party at 5pm and goes all night long! Bars and restaurants are serving up spooky cocktails until 4am and the winner for best costume is worth $1,000 — free to enter because everything happens on the street! Go to Church Street to Trick or Treat!
