Things To Do in the City Before Summer Ends

The days might be getting shorter and the weather a bit cooler, but there are still a few weeks left of summer! With Labour Day this weekend, there’s a lot to do before you kiss your summer goodbye. Here are our top suggestions for things to do before the summer officially ends.

 

Eat your heart out at the CNE

With bacon wrapped grilled cheese and poutine balls this year, as well as classics like funnel cakes and Tiny Toms doughnuts, there are enough greasy gourmet treats to keep you busy at the CNE. If the food is too much for you there are always the rides and games for you to try your luck on! The CNE runs from August 21st to September 7th in Toronto.

 

 

 

 

 

Jump on the Jay’s Bandwagon

Since the Jays are one of the favourites to win the World Series this year, now’s a better time than ever to jump on the bandwagon. The regular season goes until the end of September, but tickets are already sold out. That doesn’t mean you can’t catch a game on TV at home or at a sports bar and become a baseball pro just in time for the playoffs.
