Spend some quality time with your loved ones on this newer statutory holiday! Accordingly, there are kid-friendly happenings going on outdoors and indoors, all through the long weekend (even starting on Friday, which is a PA Day for many area students). Plus, it’s a great time of year to get festive with your “fam”, and embrace the winter season with fun on the ski hill at Brimacombe! Here then is our Guide to Family Day Weekend Events and Activities in Toronto and the GTA…


Family Day Weekend is all about spending time with family and wintertime is meant for skiing and snowboarding, so when you add these two fantastic ideas together, what better way to spend time together hanging on the slopes of Brimacombe! Even better, you don’t need to travel far to reach one of Southern Ontario’s largest ski hills, because Brimacombe is just 45 minutes east of Toronto.
