Nice light displays but not festive. Quite on a Friday night. At least parking was not a problem. Not worth a special trip.

I come here often and love all the places you can visit. Lots of artist galleries food and local art shops. One of the best places to explore in Toronto and some really good restaurants too. Try the Mexican one. You won't be disappointed.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
