Toronto Is Hosting An Amazing Harvest Festival This Fall

Hello October! As the weather begins to get colder and the leaves begin to change colours, people everywhere are preparing to welcome the arrival of autumn. It’s the perfect time to begin layering clothing, sip on warm beverages and partake in fall activities. Visiting a local farm and pumpkin patch is a fall must. Farms are the perfect way to embody the spirit of the season and have some fun. We visited Springridge Farms, just outside of Toronto, and it was truly the perfect venue to release our inner children, hop on hay rides, pick pumpkins and pet small, farm animals. The outdoor venue is located just West of Toronto, at 7256 Bell School Line in Milton, Ontario. Here we were welcomed by delicious homemade pastries, hot drinks, a charmingly quaint boutique, a corn maze, farm animals and wagon rides- just to name a few! Although this was a wonderful opportunity to be nostalgic and indulge our inner kids, we would recommend visiting the farm with actual children as most of the facility is designed for a younger...

One of our favourite zones was a room filled with oversized exercise balls and strobe neon lighting. Here, guests were encouraged to flail the large yoga balls at others and bounce around, to their heart’s content.  The décor throughout the facility was bright, colourful and eccentric. Another thing to note, was that staff members were friendly and helpful, constantly offering words of encouragement as we made our way throughout the various spaces. Overall, the experience was a great one. Pursuit OCR truly offered a wonderful variety of obstacles to keep each of our team members occupied and excited.  Quick Tips: – Before visiting, we would recommend completing waivers at home on their website to save time– Consider packing food as the facility does not have a restaurant and the vending machines are expensive– Definitely bring a lock!

We Visited Happy Place in Toronto and Here’s our Honest Review

We Visited Happy Place in Toronto and Here’s our Honest Review

Happy Place has touched down in Toronto, and this vibrant pop-up has been all over social media. The reviews have been a bit rough, so we visited it firsthand to see whether this insta-worthy spot is worth the hype. Right off the bat, the two biggest pieces of criticisms were the lines, and the ticket prices. Monday/Wednesday/Thursday: $32.50 incl HST Friday/Saturday/Sunday: $39.50 incl HST Tickets seem a bit pricey when comparing them to other activities like cineplex or the ROM, but considering the pop-up is only open for a limited window, and similar pop-ups such as Museum of Ice Cream costs approx $38, we think it’s worth the money. Kids under 4 are free, which is an added bonus.     So as you enter rooms, you can’t actually backtrack – so make sure you’re ready to leave before you move on. We went on a Wednesday at 3:00PM, and lines were non-existent. Around 3:30 it got a little bit busy, but there’s definitely enough content in each room to be entertained while you wait. Happy Place is set up for Instagram – there are multiple angles that you can experience (and photograph) each room in.     Our highlight was definitely the confetti dome – let us know what you think! We give Happy Place a 10/10....
