There is always something to do in Toronto. I live here and I never get bored. Most weekends there is something going on in front of City Hall, or in a park. There are many cultural events, and sporting events. You can check out a live theatre, or a film. Toronto has three Imax (large-format) theatres! Toronto is also home of the Toronto International Film Festival held every September. There is also the Canadian National Exhibition held every August. There is even lots to do in the winter. Winter sports are very popular in Toronto. There are many places to ice skate, or play ice hockey. There are also many professional sports teams. Toronto is a place where you need to look for something to do. There is lots to do, but it won't jump out and bite you.
