The top 5 free events in Toronto: December 7-13 2015

The top free events in Toronto this week include festive flicks, parties and holiday markets. If you're a fan of Christmas movies, A Christmas Story and Elf will be screened free of charge. Rather not spend your day cooped up in a cinema? Head to the holiday edition of Bellwoods Flea to play vintage video games and peruse vendor stalls with your four-legged friend.

Here's a round-up of free events in Toronto this week.

NOW Free Flick Mondays: A Christmas Story (December 7)
With only a few weeks until Christmas, now's the time to get into the holiday spirit. NOW Free Flick Mondays will help get you feeling festive by kicking off the week with a screening of A Christmas Story. As per usual, tickets don't cost a dime and the first 100 guests will get free popcorn on the house.

Gladstone Thursdays (December 10)
Head to the Gladstone Melody Bar this Thursday for live music by Kristen Landell. If you'd rather skip the performance, there's free adult colouring happening at the same venue at 5 p.m.

LIFE AFTER HATE: An FYOU Party! (December 10)
FYOU: The Forgiveness Project is hosting a forgiveness-based bash at Daniels Spectrum this Thursday to celebrate the organization's fifth birthday. Expect to find speakers, performers and art based on the theme of forgiveness. There will also be cake (and who doesn't love free cake?).

Rainbow Rewind Film Classics: Elf (December 12)
If you didn't get your fill of Christmas movies on Monday, Rainbow Cinema Market Square is doing a free screening of everyone's favourite holiday flick, Elf. I suggest bringing your own snacks if you don't want to get gouged at the concession stand.

It's a Bellwoods Holiday Market (December 12)
Do a little window shopping this Saturday at the holiday edition of the Bellwoods Flea. If you can't resist spending while checking out the goods, opt to play a retro video game or catch a screening of a Christmas movie (they'll be playing all day). And, if you're not feeling overly stingy, you can purchase food and drinks for under 10 bucks.

Still from Elf.
