It is time again for Toronto’s waterfront to come to life and celebrate the holidays. Santa will be making two stops at the annual Winterfest on Toronto’s Waterfront, presented by the Toronto Port Authority and sponsored by Scotiabank, this holiday season. So, if you are wondering what to do in Toronto this weekend (and next) bring the entire family…and the dog…down to the waterfront.
What to do in Toronto: Winterfest 2014
Frozen Ice Queen & Ice Princess Show: Who hasn’t been enchanted by the super-popular musical Frozen? Meet your favourite princesses and their friend Kristof, in the interactive show inside the Queen’s Quay Terminal. Visitors can have their pictures taken with both the Ice Queen and the Ice Princess in the Queen’s Quay Terminal.
Craft Making: Head over to Santa’s Workshop in Queen’s Quay Terminal for free arts and crafts activities. Children can create holiday ornaments and greeting cards or decorate an elf hat with Santa’s elves.
Pet Photos with Santa: Has your dog or cat been naughty or nice this year? Bring your family pet to meet Santa. Santa is visiting PawsWay (245 Queens Quay West) and pets can hop up and have a visit. Capture the special moment in a photograph with funds going to support guide dogs.
Mariposa Santa Cruise: The Northern Spirit will be boarding all weekend long at the foot of York Street, for one-hour cruises with Santa. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Children are encouraged to bring along their wish lists to share with Santa. The elves will keep children and parents entertained with crafting, face painting and much more.
