The top 5 free events in Toronto: July 27-August 2

Free events in Toronto will have you getting in the spirit for Caribana. Whether you plan to don a feather headdress or celebrate from the sidelines, there's plenty of cost-free carnival themed fun on tap this week. If you're not in the mood for festival crowds, head to Regent Park for a free screening of Boyz N The Hood.

Here's what to do if you barely made rent.
