What: Body Percussion Festival
Where: Harbourfront Centre
When: March 28 – 30
How much: $15 for students

Kudos to those who are musically inclined enough to play an instrument, but major kudos to anyone who can make (good sounding) music without any instruments at all. How is this possible, you ask? By using insane coordination accompanied by clapping, snapping and stomping. If you put this all together, you get body percussion.

What: Farewell Winter Funeral
Where: 1496 Queen St. W

When: March 29, 8 p.m.
How much: Free

Typically, funerals aren’t pleasant  — unless of course you’re a bitter and heartless person and enjoy that type of thing. But this upcoming funeral is one that is socially acceptable to be happy about. It’s time to “mourn” the death of winter and welcome spring with open arms. There will be cake (and lets be serious, cake makes everything better).

What: The Bazaar of the Bizarre Circus Side Show
Where: 6 Noble St.

When: March 30, 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.
How much: Free

Do finals make you want to drop out of school and join the circus? Well, here’s your chance (sort of). The Bazaar of the Bizarre is a marketplace for “all things weird.” Magicians, dancers and “freaks” will be in attendance, so feel free to jump on the bandwagon and begin your life on the road as a bearded lady.

What: Toronto Reptile Expo
Where: 40 Carl Hall Road

When: March 30
How much: $10

The Toronto reptile expo, also known as the ideal place to get over your irrational fear of snakes, will be in the city this weekend. Here’s to hoping nothing escapes from its cage.
