You Say: Summer in Toronto

When you hear the phrase summer in Toronto, what do you think of? Maybe it’s a trip to the local splash pad with your kids. Maybe it’s a day at one of the fabulous local festivals that happen across the city during the warmer months. Maybe it’s eating lots of deep-fried food at the CNE, or going out for ice cream. Maybe it’s leaving Toronto altogether, and doing some camping. There are no shortage of ways to make kid-friendly Toronto memories during the summer months. That’s why we decided to ask the best experts on the city we know – Toronto moms – what makes summer in the city so fabulous for our latest You Say feature.

For the next week, we’re asking you a simple question:
