Easter Fun-Filled Weekend in Toronto
With the second long weekend of 2014 approaching us, there comes a question of, what can I do to make the most out of this weekend? Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of a prophet for Christians, and a time to celebrate freedom for Jews. With two very important spiritual meanings, it is more importantly a time to spend with family and friends. What better way to do that, than getting out and exploring this beautiful city we live in.
Today is your last shopping day before the weekend, most grocery stores including Metro, No Frills and Loblaws will have modified hours, check you local listings. Shopping Malls like Yorkdale, Sherway Gardens, Vaughn Mills, and Scarborough Town Centre will all be closed on Easter Friday; Eaton centre will be open from 10:00am-6:00pm.
Here are a few activities to enjoy this weekend!
