Toronto, Ontario – October 2000
Oh, to be in Toronto now that autumns’ here! No, not a quote from Shakespeare but the first few weeks of the month mean falling leaves of all colours and the scent of fall in the air – a great time to visit. Here are some interesting events for the month:
Canadian International Marathon
Pro and amateur runners from around the world in a 26 mile test of endurance and determination.
The second Monday of October is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Be aware that many businesses, banks and other places are closed. Check a local newspaper for what’s open and closed, but most places stay open in tourist areas.
Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction
Over 500 cars are expected for this event, so if you’re a car fanatic, this one’s for you. No purchase necessary, I’m sure. See this web site for the facts: www.rmcars.com.
Spooky Spirits and Phantom Ships
Come to the Pier on Toronto’s waterfront for a unique and fun experience. Learn about Canadian sailors and hear some ghost tales of the Great Lakes. Great for kids of all ages.
