Festivals and events will shut down roads in Toronto for the August long weekend
The August civic holiday, also known as Simcoe Day, will make this weekend in Toronto a long one. It's also going to be a weekend full of celebrations and road closures as popular events like Caribana and Veld roll into town. It's best to ditch the car and get in on the action.
However, if you do plan on driving around the city this August long weekend, here's what you need to know.
