5 reasons to get excited for the fall in Toronto

5 reasons to get excited for the fall in Toronto

Posted by PanamericanWorld on October 03, 2016

Just because the days are already shorter and darker than they were just a few weeks ago doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.

At least, not in Toronto, it doesn’t.

The city is just as great once the boats go into storage and the patio-owners stack up their chairs for the season.

Here are 9 reasons to get excited for the fall in Toronto.

1. Charity Event Season

While the breezy summer nights and backyard BBQs are winding down, Toronto’s charity event circuit is just ramping up. This includes Boobyball, the long-time young professional must-attend to benefit Rethink Breast Cancer, taking place on Friday, October 14 at the newly opened Rebel. The next night Hush Hush – yes, back-to-back events are ambitious, but totally worth it – invites its well-heeled guests to party in the stacks of a library in support of the Toronto Public Library’s Young Voices initiative.

2. The National Ballet Presents Cinderella

An evening or weekend afternoon spent at the ballet is always an experience you’ll remember – there’s something distinctively special about it. This fall, you can watch a classic childhood fairytale come to life when the National Ballet of Canada presents Cinderella from November 12-20. When you’re familiar with the storyline, the ballet is always way more fun. Not to mention, it offers an excuse to get dressed up and grace the always stunning, glass-filled Four Seasons Centre (and, naturally, take a few pictures on the elegant staircase).

3. Halloween

There’s only one time of year when you can excuse bad behaviour with a costume, overdose on sugar from your niece or nephew’s trick-or-treat stash and party with other fine, costume-clad young professionals. Naturally, we’re throwing our own party to mark the occasion (see you October 29 at Buananotte) but there’s no shortage of other things happening around the city as well for the party hopping set.

4. New Restaurants

The new season means new restaurant openings. Officially opening its doors for reservations this week is STK. Now, you won’t have to cross the border to sink your teeth into the upscale steak joint’s juicy goodness. Also new to the city is King West’s Calii Love, which has already become a quick favourite among the foodies on tight time schedules. Here, you can get your poke fix, while enjoying the laid-back California-inspired vibe.

5. The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO)

The TSO – who, as you may recall, we joined on tour in Florida back in January – is back in full force for its new, multi-faceted season. You don’t need to be a seasoned symphony buff to appreciate the show either. For example, if you prefer Abba over Mozart, that’s exactly what you’ll get this October 4 and 5. To close the month, October 29 and 30 also marks this season’s launch of the TSO’s popular Films with Live Orchestra Series. Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton features themes and songs from Danny Elfman’s iconic film scores to BatmanEdward ScissorhandsThe Nightmare Before Christmas, and more.
