As our regular series continues, we look at events happening in Toronto for a variety of ages and interests.

Dec. 13-14, 2013

Ping pong: Planning an office party or just an offbeat date? SPiN Toronto offers enormous boozy punch bowls and dozens of ping pong tables, perfect for breaking the ice. Breaking a sweat is up to you. 461 King. St. W. Sunday-Wednesday, noon-1 a.m.; Thursday-Saturday, noon-2 a.m. $10-$60.

Christmas at Kortright: Travel back in time with a horse-drawn sleigh ride at the Kortright Centre for Conservation in Woodbridge. Visit Santa in his workshop, sample Christmas-themed treats, and try your hand at arts and crafts. 9550 Pine Valley Dr. Friday & Saturday, 5 p.m.-9 p.m. This is a pre-ticketed event, see website for details.

Walk and Wag for Warmth: Bring your best four-legged friend down to the PawsWay on the Harbourfront where it can meet Santa and have its picture taken with St. Nick himself. There’s also face-painting and arts and crafts for kids. PawsWay, 245 King. St. West. Saturday. Walk begins at 11 a.m. and heads north to Old City Hall. $10-$19.

Skate night: It’s back. Outdoor late night skates — set to a soundtrack of funk, soul, and R&B — have returned to the Harbourfront rink. Lace up and head out! Skate rentals available. Saturdays until March 14. 8 p.m.-11 p.m. Free.

Leslieville Flea: The newly-formed market has moved indoors for the winter, with many of the same vendors from the summer offering antique furniture, vintage clothes and records. Food — and perhaps a last minute gift? — is also available. Jimmy Simpson Recreation Centre, 870 Queen St. E. Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
