Here's how to have fun on the cheap in Toronto this week without crashing a kid's ball pit party.
Ah, yes. Each year, hundreds gather at Yonge-Dundas Square to smoke out the domineering billboards and give peace a chance, while the police will look on and wish the day would end so they could go home and party, Canada-style, themselves. If you're going to brave the crowds, remember not to operate heavy machinery within the next few hours and don't ride the dogs with the pot leaf bandanas, because they are dogs, not dragons. Sunday, April 20, 4:20-ish, Yonge-Dundas Square.
