Family Day on Toronto's Waterfront - Mon Feb 17 - Here's What Happening

 FREE Family Day fun for kids of all ages is only footsteps away at Family 
Day on Toronto’s Waterfront presented by The Waterfront BIA on Monday, February 17 along the Waterfront, 
from 10am until 6pm. Watch dog sport demos, create arts and crafts, discover Inuit art and warm up with a hot 
drink! Visit www.waterfrontbia.com or call 416-596-9821 for more information. 

WOOFJOCKS CANINE ALL STARS @ PAWSWAY – 11:30am / 1pm / 2:30pm / 4pm 

Visit PawsWay (245 Queens Quay West) for FREE, furry family fun! Activities include pet themed face-painting, 
arts, crafts and lots of FREE games and prizes courtesy of Purina Dog Chow! All shows are FREE. Visit 
www.pawsway.ca for more information. 

Purveyors of dog-approved fun, the Woofjocks Canine All Stars will be doing demos of today’s most popular 
canine sports. The Woofjocks are a high-energy dog/handler performance team specializing in interactive 
games and demonstrations of canine agility and obedience. After each show, they do a ‘meet & greet’ where 
children come out onto the floor and meet the dogs and have photos taken. 

It wouldn’t be Family Day on Toronto’s Waterfront without a collection of colourful clowns. Pockets and 
Bilboa the Clowns will perform two 20-minute magic shows, make balloon animals and assist the talented Ester 
in creating pet themed face painting for the boys and girls. 

FREE ADMISSION AND ACTIVITIES @ MUSEUM OF INUIT ART – 10am – 6pm 

Visit the Museum of Inuit Art (MIA) (207 Queens Quay West) and explore one of Canada’s national treasures. 
MIA offers a space where Inuit artistic expressions, both past and present, spark immersive experiences for 
visitors and is the only museum devoted exclusively to Inuit art south of the Canadian Arctic. Admission is FREE 
all day! 

Get hands-on with objects from the MIA educational collection to learn about properties of the materials being 
used by Inuit artists and how this impacts the art being produced in the Arctic today. 

Discover Inuit art! In honour of Family Day, the museum will be launching their new Adventure Pack program. 
Families are invited to get up close and personal with the collection through fun-filled activities they can 
complete at their own pace. Information about culture, history and lifestyle will be revealed as you are sent on an 
adventure through the museum in search of details in objects on display. Use the Inuktitut words you’ve learn 
while exploring the museum to solve a word puzzle. Create an object-based poem and much more. 

Take FREE guided tours of the museum at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm.
