It’s January, and it’s cold and kinda blah: we need a reason to party! With that in mind, head on down to the Harbourfront Centre to ring in the traditional Asian Lunar New Year with a two-day LunarFest Celebration. Equine-themed to reflect the Year of the Horse, the event will include theatre productions, performances by Ho Deng Music Ensemble, dumpling and tea samples, a giant rocking horse, gorgeous lanterns, games, crafts, and much more for attendees of all ages.
You know what they say—Saturday night’s all right for fighting. Particularly when it’s a (mostly friendly) all-female battle, and roller skates are involved…Not sure what we’re talking about? It’s Toronto Roller Derby‘s eighth Season Opener! Two bouts see Chicks Ahoy! take on the Gore-Gore Rollergirls, followed by Toronto Junior Roller Derby versus the Alliston Junior Rollergirls.
