Toronto's largest winter festival urges audiences to celebrate, not hibernate.
Toronto Winterfest presented by Shoppers Drug Mart, redefines the conventional
ideas of winter, bringing vibrant, topsy-turvy spectacle and colourful
celebration to two city squares - Nathan Phillips Square and Mel Lastman
Square. Running from February 7 & 9, 2003, Winterfest features physical
theatre, celebrity food demonstrations, film, live music, and other great
attractions including unforgettable opening ceremonies with a fabulous ice
skating show, and a big outdoor Saturday night concert at Nathan Phillips
Square. The festival is free so it is easy for everyone to beat the cold this
winter.

Take the TTC to both the festival sites! For Nathan Phillips Square located at
100 Queen Street West, take the TTC Queen Street streetcar (501), or the Yonge
Line subway (exit Queen station) or the University Line (exit Osgoode
station). For Mel Lastman Square, 5100 Yonge Street, take the Yonge Line
subway (exit North York Centre). Getting there couldn't be easier!
