February 23 Clothing Swap Party If you have clothes to discard and $8 you could wind up with a whole new wardrobe on Saturday.

The event also includes food, diy tips, and on-site alterations for all your new clothes!

February 23 Yes Detroit On Saturday bring some of the States (Detroit) to Canada (Toronto).

February 23-24 Bloor-Yorkville Ice fest Get your winter on by staring in awe at a series of ice sculptures and scenes crafted from over 30,000 lbs of ice. Explore the “Wonderful and Whimsical” ice display, which features ice representatins of fairies, gnomes, butterflies, mice, and flowers with animated faces.
