The Toronto Fringe Festival is returning to the city this week.

And with it comes the transformation of one of downtown’s beloved outdoor rinks into an equally-beloved (giant) patio space.

POSTSCRIPT patio will be taking over the rink at 275 Bathurst Street in alignment with the beginning of the arts festival: July 3.

And the transformation will last until the festival ends on July 14.
