Top Activities for Families on Family Day

Let’s face it: most of us live hectic, on-the-go lifestyles. Juggling day-to-day responsibilities like important meetings, presentations, sports practices and dance rehearsals can sometimes make it difficult to slow down. Sounds like you? No problem! We’ve put together the top four things to do together this Family Day.




This Family Day, you can feel like you’re on top of the world – or at least the top of Toronto. The CN Tower’s LookOut Level is perched 346 meters (1,136 feet) above the city, and with floor-to-ceiling panoramic window walls, it boasts spectacular views.


One level below is an all-new glass floor, installed directly above the original, which was installed in 1994. This adrenaline-rushing experience offers a vertical view 346 meters straight down!


Did you know you can save 25% by taking advantage of the Family Pass? This consists of two adult general admission tickets and two child general admission tickets. This package offers access two observation levels, including the LookOut Level, Glass Floor and EdgeWalk.


The family pass is only available for purchase online and must be redeemed by March 31, 2019.




If you’re looking for an interactive and educational experience to engage in this weekend, then look no further!


From story time and arts and crafts to Wildzone Workshops and musical performances, The Royal Ontario Museum is inviting you to join in a world of excitement.


Performances range from Renaissance and Baroque to 19th Century Character Dance. This family-friendly program will also include Flamenco dancing and some beautiful songs by Mozart. Opera Atelier’s founding co-artistic Director, Marshall Pynkoski, will provide the educational and entertaining commentary.


While family festivities take place all weekend, these special performances will take place on Monday, February 18 at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and will run for 40 minutes.




With extended holiday hours and a wide range of activities, Ontario Place is bringing families together this weekend.


Skating is one of the most popular winter activities, so why not join in the skate parties? Skate the night away while live DJs spin tunes for visitors of all ages. Later, cozy up near the bonfire and warm up with a steam cup of hot chocolate.


Despite winter being gloomy and dark, Ontario Place is also bringing some light back to those cold, sunless days with the Winter Light Exhibition. Utilizing creativity, innovation, light and discovery, creators from all artistic streams will showcase their exhibits following the curatorial theme of “Disruptive Engagement.”


Looking for an indoor experience? Hit the world’s first permanent IMAX® theatre! This weekend they are showing:


  1. Inception: The IMAX Experience – Friday, February 15 to Monday, February 18
  2. Iron Giant (Signature Edition) – Saturday, February 16 to Monday, February 18
  3. A Beautiful Planet – Monday, February 18
