As any Toronto parent doubtlessly already knows, next week is March Break, when all local students have a week off from hitting the books. As a result, many Toronto attractions are offering special programming to give all the bored munchkins something to do!
The Hockey Hall of Fame will be celebrating Canada’s double gold medal performance in women’s and men’s hockey at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games with over 50 new artifacts from both teams. Casa Loma is hosting a Dr. Seuss’ Grinch-themed week that will include a huge scavenger hunt, storytelling sessions, animated short screenings, and, of course, appearances by The Grinch himself! At the Bata Shoe Museum, children can go on a secret spy mission throughout the museum with plenty of espionage-themed arts, crafts, and activities! Finally, for those a bit older, Comicon will be taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this weekend (March 8-9). Special guests include Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, Lord of the Rings’ Sean Astin, Dollhouse’s Eliza Dushku, and Superman’s Brandon Routh, among many others.
There is plenty to do for March Break in Toronto next week! All of the attractions listed here are accessible via CitySightseeing Toronto’s hop on hop off city tour. Check them all out!
