Things to Do This Labour Day Weekend

The end of summer is rapidly approaching with the Labour Day long weekend just around the corner. This means a few things for us Canadians, the kids are going back to school, and we get an extra day off work to soak up the final days of summer. If you’re in the GTA and looking for something to keep you busy for Labour Day weekend, City Gate Suites’ blog has you covered.

Canadian National Exhibition

the exCommonly known as the “CNE” or “The Exhibition”, this event takes place for 18 days at the end of the summer ever year, and brings about 1.5 million visitors. The CNE takes place in downtown Toronto on the waterfront, boasting beautiful views of the lake.

It is the largest fair in Canada, and for good reason, as you can find carnival games, rides, concerts, shopping, unique carnival food and much more. One of the most popular events to take place each year is the Airshow which runs September 2nd to 4th, and includes performances from the Canadian Armed Forces, the United States Air Force, and many others. Other events to get excited for include daily dog shows and music concerts, aerial acrobatics and ice skating shows, and of course…the hundreds of food vendors and trucks!!
