Harbourfront Centre's Fall Extravaganza:

Every year, Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre organizes a series of fall workshops for children.

The center’s outdoor ice rink also opens late in the fall, offering kids a chance to glide and twirl amidst the golden and crimson trees surrounding the area.

Farm Excursions:

Several farms near Toronto invite families for a day of fall fun. Kids can navigate corn mazes, go on tractor rides, pick their pumpkins, and even pet farm animals. The apple orchards around the city also open their gates for families to pick their apples, making it both a fun and educational experience as they learn about different apple varieties.
