What to do about the Town – Sept 24 to 26

One of the many benefits of living in a megalopolis is the vast variety of events that occur in and around us every day. With the Autumnal Equinox upon us, finding outdoorsy things to do is easy and fun.

The days are shorter, but the sun is just as bright and the breeze has that cool nip to it that’s just refreshing. We suggest that you just get out there and enjoy everything our hip little town has to offer!

Even if that means you have to drive a bit out into the country. Having been to Chudleigh’s Apple Farm many times before, this is a one stop shop for Fall. You can bring the entire family to pick your own Apples, take a hay wagon ride, enjoy a picnic and the bake shop. They have the signature Apple Blossoms as well as apple pie, apple crumble and Veronica’s personal favourite, pumpkin pie. Not to mention, the abundance of fresh pumpkins ready to be turned into lanterns. http://www.chudleighs.com/index.html

If you prefer to stay in the city then you’re in luck this weekend! The Clothing Show is happening at the Better Living Center, Exhibition Place September 24th to 26th and boasts over 300 booths of new clothing designers, jewellers, and accessories. For the environmentally conscious, they have vintage and eco friendly clothing. They also added runway shows and an art gallery. http://www.theclothingshow.com/index.html

The neatest thing to be happening this weekend is the Small World Music Festival which celebrates the diversity that makes our community so unique. This is an opportunity to discover music from other cultures without having to leave our own backyards. Also, the Small World on the Street will be part of this weekend’s Word on the Street Festival , which will showcase six Toronto Global Music acts. http://www.smallworldmusic.com/

Word on the Street Festival is happening on Sunday September 26th at Queen’s Park. Food lovers, families and book lovers will delight in this outdoor festival. There are many different areas that are bound to satisfy even the pickiest of readers. New to the festival this year is publishing giant, Penguin, who is celebrating their 75th birthday by exhibiting their great authors. http://www.thewordonthestreet.ca/wots/toronto

And of course, plenty of new movies premiere this weekend as well, in case you’d rather spend your time cozied up in a theatre with your hand in a bag of popcorn. Our pick? You Again, starring Kristen Bell (Ashley’s #1 girl crush), Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver. Yeah, sure, it will most likely be like every other movie of a similar nature, but Kristen Bell is funny and this movie will no doubt be just as charming.
