Road closures for weekend events in Toronto
  
There are two special events this weekend in Toronto that all residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy. Businesses in the affected areas are open to pedestrian traffic, but some roads will be closed to motorists.

The public is encouraged to take public transit as a greener, faster and more affordable means of getting to their destinations.

A number of partial closures will take place from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 24 to accommodate this event. The roads affected will be in the area bounded by Strachan Avenue in the west, Queen’s Quay in the south, Bay Street in the east and Dundas Street to the north.

Annual Danforth BIA Charity Road Hockey Challenge
