Don’t Miss TIFF boombox!

Boombox17_insta_1080x1080 (1)

In only a few days, one of Toronto’s hottest events will light up the night. TIFF boombox, an annual fundraiser, is on November 2nd. Each year, the theme is different. This year, the theme is inspired by the classic film, Fame! The Lightbox will come alive with art installations, performances and music all throughout the space.

“Unlike traditional charity fundraisers[…] the goal of Boombox is to take party-goers outside their comfort zone with theatrical, immersive experiences that leave a lasting impression.”

Guests will wander through the building for a choose-your-own adventure of music, art. food, drinks. Fly Lady Di fuses traditional Filipino movement with street dance. DJs Nino Brown & Dre Ngozi will be spinning, and there are a slew of other artists and performers that will keep you entertained. See the full list of artists here.

All funds raised at the event will go to Share her Journey – TIFF’s initiative supporting women in front of and behind the camera. The initiative aims to increase participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.

It’s not too late to get your tickets and attend this great event. Tickets are $160, get yours here!




Toronto Lights Festival


You know that scene at the end of the movie Tangled, where all the lanterns are released and they are beautiful. I’ve lived my life trying to replicate that (okay, fine. I tried to recreate it for my wedding, but it didn’t work out). Unfortunately, these gorgeous lanterns are banned from most places because they are a fire hazard.

Luckily, there are awesome events like Lantern Fest! At Lantern Fest, every visitor will be able to release their own lantern into the sky! The festival will be held in an open field so that there aren’t any fire hazards. Of course, there is the possibility that the event may be cancelled if the winds are blowing the wrong way, but hopefully that won’t happen. If that does happen, the event will be held again within 3 months.

In the GTA, the event will be held in Ohsweken, Ontario. This is about an hour and 10 minutes away from downtown Toronto, so it’s pretty close! Ticket price includes your own lantern and a welcome kit. Bring your own chairs and blankets and get ready for a magical evening!

Sounds like fun? Readers can save $5 off tickets by using the code HEARTLESS.
