Things to do in Toronto September 2, 3, 4 & 5, 2011

What is there to do on a long weekend in Toronto?  No, the question should be what is there not to do on a summer long weekend in Canada's best City. It's time to enjoy freedom before school begins and the homework piles up, freedom from freezing your ass off when winter hits, freedom to enjoy the CNE before it packs up it's rides and heads back to the road. The Labour Day weekend is a jewel in the weekends of life.
Continuing until Mon September 5: The Canadian National Exhibition CNE.
Fri September 2 to Mon September 5: The Hispanic Fiesta at Mel Lastman Square.
Fri September 2 to Mon September 5: Hot and Spicy Food Festival - you can also find some of the Toronto Roller Derby skaters at the festival down at Harbourfront Centre.
Sat September 3 to Monday September 5: The Canadian International Air Show CIAS. They also tend to practice over the harbour on Friday from about 10am-2pm. You can also visit the Canadian Armed Forces Naval ship that you can tour during the weekend - see more information at the bottom of this post.
Sat September 3 to Sun September 5: Fiera in Little Italy.
The flower is sad that summer is almost over.

The ultra famous Toronto Film Festival TIFF will soon shine the world's spotlight on our fair city, running from September 8th to the 18th.
