Free in Toronto

Having grown up in a small city (pop. 75,000) compared to the metropolis that is Toronto, I'm trying to take advantage of the many events/attractions that Toronto holds.

I'm hoping to attend at least 2 events or attractions per month.  Here's the list I've compiled so far until 2011:
  • Ontario Science Centre - Teacher Day is November of my girlfriends who'd already planned to visit over this weekend for the Food and Wine show is a teacher, so we'll be taking advantage of this day - saving $20 each!
  • Riverdale Farm - Open year round, access to the farm animals is free
  • Cavalcade of Lights - November 27th, lighting of Toronto's official Christmas tree, fireworks and live musical performances by Shawn Desman, Divine Brown and Sarah Slean.
  • Public Skating - Free if you bring your own skates, Nathan Phillips Square, usually opens end of November
  • Santa Clause Parade - November 21st, free breakfast, coffee/hot chocolate in Yonge-Dundas Square
  • Kidzfest - November 27 and 28. I don't have kids, but thought I'd mention it anyways for Toronto readers who do.
  • Ice, Wine, and Dine - November 13. Live ice carvings, fire performers, live music.
  • Art Gallery of Ontario - Free admission on Wednesdays from 6:00pm - 8:30pm

What free events will you be attending in your city?
