These are all the road closures happening in Toronto this weekend

Sep 5 2019, 9:18 am

A street festival, delicious food, and a run.

These are just some of the ingredients for any good weekend. Let alone the first weekend of TIFF, and particularly one which will get you grabbing your shades for the sunshine and 22°C temperatures.

Unfortunately, it also means more than a few road closures in the city.
