Looking for something to do in Toronto this weekend? Here are some suggestions from Mel.
Are you one of those people who simply cannot wait for Christmas to get here? Then you must check out the Santa Claus Parade! It is looking to be a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon so you won’t have to bundle up in your thermals to enjoy the show. With local bands playing festive tunes, cheery clowns entertaining the child in all of us and, of course, a visit from Santa himself, the Santa Claus Parade is sure to bring on holiday spirit!

It’s a kaleidoscopic look into the making of the Reflektor album and features personal interviews, unseen footage and dazzling effects. (November 13-19)
