The top 10 events in Toronto this September

There's no denying the biggest event in Toronto this month is TIFF. An endless frenzy of stars, a major street festival and of course all the flicks have the city under its spell for 10 days. But this month also gives us Nuit Blanche, the highly-anticipated Edit Festival, the much-hyped Invictus Games and plenty of concerts and free events.
