Yorkville Road Closures to Be Aware of in Toronto this Weekend


The annual Bloor-Yorkville Icefest is taking place this weekend, transforming the neighbourhood into a magical display of over 70,000 lbs. of crystal-clear ice carved into captivating sculptures. This year’s theme is ‘Awesome 80’s’ and each sculpture will be inspired by the music, art, film and fashion of the decade.
