Do Make Say Think (July 11-13)
This weekend, we're exploring India and the Caribbean, picking flowers and antiques and watching movies in the park.


Caribana launched this week for its 46th year of celebrations at Nathan Phillips Square. This weekend is the first of three weeks that will include dancing, music, galas and carnivals. Check out the official Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto website for a full list of programming. Across the city, July 11-August 3, prices vary


The Toronto Flower Market is back in bloom with the return to the lot at 1056 Queen West. The monthly market that sees Ontario growers and farmers selling stems to the public at reduced prices has been growing in popularity with its own branded merchandise available in addition to the flowers, plants and succulents always on display. Arrive early for the best picks. 1056 Queen Street West, July 12, Free

Craft junkies, junk hoarders, and those who hoard antiques: Junction Flea is back for two Sundays in a row. This Sunday, the Sterling Road lot location will be filled with goods built, designed, and chosen by crafters and pickers alike. Arrive around 10AM to walk away with the best and weirdest items. Sterling Road, July 13, $2


Join the chants: Festival of India takes place this week with a parade around Yonge and Bloor and the Hare Krishna Festival on Centre Island. Immerse in culture by participating in yoga classes and seminars and get a taste for new foods and arts in the many showcases happening throughout the festival. Centre Island, Yonge/Bloor, July 12-13, Free


Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot screens this Sunday at Christie Pits Film Festival. Grab a seat on the hill while you enjoy the 1950s French black and white picture by Jacques Tati about a likeable man who can’t help but create chaos around him while on vacation. The film screens with two short films. Bring a blanket and bike over to the park! Christie Pits Park (750 Bloor Street West), July 13, Free
