Toronto’s annual Family Day Fest brings together a gathering of amusement park rides, carnival games, and family-oriented entertainment to stimulate youngsters and amuse parents. As magicians perform and rainbow-haired clowns debate politics with their balloon animals, parents accompany their tykes as they wind through the fair’s many indoor attractions. Activities include inflatable jumping castles and a miniature Ferris wheel. Visitors indulge in unlimited rides, enabling a day’s-worth of diversion that can send visitors aged 2–10 descending slides or navigating an obstacle course.
Family Fun Fest
For three days, the Family Fun Fest comes to town, delighting children and families with 30,000 square feet of rides and activities. The indoor amusement park has it all: carnival rides, ball pits, giant slides, and inflatables. A lot of inflatables—think giant structures that feature gorillas, dinosaurs, pandas, and soccer balls. When kids need a break from bouncing, they can try their hand at carnival and arcade games, or catch Doo Doo the Clown's interactive show that not only features ample clowning, but also magic tricks.
