The top 5 free events in Toronto: October 12-18 2015

The top free events in Toronto this week will test your skills at knife throwing and appeal to your love of zines. TKTO, an East York knife throwing range, is opening this week and inviting everyone to check it out, free of charge. If the sharpest object you can handle is a pencil, no worries. Canzine is back for another year so you can check out the latest zines or make your own.

Here's what to do if your bank account is collecting dust.

Head to The Garrison on Tuesday for a cost-free comedy show. Kathleen Phillips-Locke, Natalie Norman, Marito Lopez, Guled Abdi, Amanda Day, and Chris Robinson will be providing the laughs for the evening.

Toronto has all sorts of unique activities on offer, from bubble soccer to archery tag. The newest kid on the block is knife throwing, and it's coming to East York this Thursday. The open house of TKTO is free, so you can try your hand.

Canzine Toronto 2015 (October 17)

Trinity Bellwoods Flea October Edition (October 17)
Do a little window shopping this Saturday at the Trinity Bellwoods Flea. If you have a couple bucks to spare, $5 champagne mimosas will be served - so you can get a bit boozy while you browse. The soundtrack will be 80s and 90s classics, so feel free to have a solo dance party in the middle of the market to TLC and Mariah Carey.
