Halloween is here and the spooky festivities are in full swing everywhere around the city.

Venture to the Toronto Zoo for Boo in the Zoo this Friday and Saturday. With zoo staff dressed up as characters and a handful of Halloween events, it’s a must-see spot this weekend for families. Children 12 and under in costume will get in free.

Celebrate the Day of the Dead at Evergreen Brick Works this Sunday. Dia de Muertos is a Mexican tradition that gathers friends and family to pray for the dead. The event will feature everything from traditional Mexican dancing to tequila tasting.

After Halloween activities end, clear your head with an afternoon of refreshments at Tea and Tour Sundays at the Gibson House Museum.

This weekend will be a busy one for sports fans in the GTA. The Air Canada Centre will be action-packed with the Toronto Maple Leafs playing Friday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Toronto Raptors going up against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.

Here’s what you can expect this weekend and how to avoid travel delays:
