Tweed Ride Toronto rolls into town tomorrow (October 15). Dress up in tweed, grab your bike and ride for a good cause. Meeting point is Trinity Bellwoods Park for 3pm. You can still register on ride-day…just show up early (12pm-2:30pm).

Screemers haunts Toronto tonight until Halloween.  Visitors can “live the fear” as they walk through six bone-chilling attractions: The Asylum, House of Cards, The Darkness, Haunted House, Maniac Maze and Slasher Wax Museum. It takes places at Queen Elizabeth Complex in Exhibition Place.

Powerhouse of Terror is another haunting alternative open until  Halloween.  The Powerhouse warns “you will experience fear at its deepest level” at its various attractions including: CarnEvil Manor, Quarantine, Insidious and Buried Alive.  A portion of net proceeds from admission and concessions will benefit the PACT Urban Peace Program.

  • Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival is taking place now until October 16th at various venues in the city.  The films included explore the environment and focus on themes such as wildlife, climate change, public health, war, globalization, forests and more. 

Continuing this week:

      • The Toronto Chocolate Festival is in town until October 23rd at Roy Thomson Hall. If you’re a chocoholic you will want to check out this event and try samples of chocolate in every tasty and delicious form.
      • In theatre, Mirvish brings you 2 shows until October 30th: Chess The Musical, where “two of the world’s greatest chess masters battle it out at the world chess championships but their greatest contest is for the love of one woman”. The other is Private Lives, co-starring Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City) and Paul Gross (Due South), wonderfully matched; their on-stage chemistry only intensifies from scene to scene.
