5 Things to Do This Fall Season
It’s here! The season we’ve all been waiting for. This time of year goes by many names, all worthy of its magnificence: Autumn, Fall, Spooky Season, Satan’s Summer. If you are anything like me, you have been waiting for Fall all year. You cherish everything about it; the pumpkin spice, the halloween decorations, childish anticipation in the air. There’s just so much to do that sometimes you just don’t even know where to start. So, to make sure you make the most out of this season, here is a list of 5 things that you can do this year to enjoy all that this time can bring.
1. Day of the Dead
Date: November 3, 2018- November 4, 2018
Location: Harbourfront Centre, 235, Queens Quay West, Toronto
This is a festival celebrating the Mexican holiday, ‘Dia de los Muertos’ or ‘Day of the Dead. This celebration is meant to honour the lives of those who have passed. Despite its seemingly solemn pretenses, this holiday is filled with culture, joy and colour. Experience a piece of Mexican culture through the food, music and traditions.
2. Project Lunchbag
Date: November 17
Location: 519 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2C9
Project Lunchbag is an event brought to you by your very own Project 5K! Together, volunteers will first make and pack lunch, and then, as a group, go to downtown Toronto and distribute these lunches to the homeless. In addition to being a lot of fun and a great opportunity to make new friends, this opportunity allows you to help others and possibly make someone’s day. This fall, donate your time to help others in your community.
3. World Vision with Night of Hope
Date: November 30 Location: Air Canada Centre, Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON M5J
Another event that Project 5K provides volunteers for, World Vision with Night of Hope is an opportunity to attend and volunteer at an event aimed to make a global change. Volunteers will be helping to promote the child sponsorship program for World Vision as they work towards making a difference in the lives of people around the world.
4. Taste of Iceland
Date: November 1- November 5
Location: Various venues, Toronto
Get a taste of Iceland! Learn about a new culture through this opportunity. Discover its unique cuisine, design, entertainment and more through this five day event as each day sheds light on a different aspect of Iceland and its rich roots is explored.
This year, enjoy the spooky season with friends or family. There are so many ways that you can spend Halloween this season. Go trick or treating and indulge yourself in free candy! If you feel you are too old for trick or treating, which personally I don’t believe is possible, you can throw a costume party. You can watch a scary movie with your friends or make fun themed crafts. If all else fails, you can always dress up in a costume and scare the kids asking for candy at your door. Don’t let this time of year go to waste...
