You never know who you may see. Appearing at the Harbourfront today is a myriad of local and international talent from the Toronto International Circus Festival, brought to you by Zero Gravity Circus and Harbourfront Center. Acts ranging from new vaudeville to contortionists to acrobats are complemented by hands-on activities for kids. (And it’s all free—but today’s the last day to take it all in.)
