Tim Hortons Turns Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square Into 1964 (PHOTOS)

Tim Hortons

When you're a Canadian icon, there's only one way to celebrate your 50th birthday — by transforming a giant landmark into the past.

As part of their 50th birthday celebrations, Tim Hortons has turned Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square into 1964, complete with vintage signage, old-school cups and actors dressed up in fabulous early 1960s styles to complete the picture. Oh, and they're also handing out free coffee and doughnuts, which is just a tad above their 1964 price tag of 10 cents each.

The time warp is just one of the parties going on nationwide this week, which include free birthday cake doughnuts being handed out on Saturday, as well as a contest to bring back one of the favourite menu items from the past.

Check out these awesome images of how Tim Hortons recreated the 1960s in the middle of Toronto (and cleverly threw their hats into the #ThrowbackThursday game):
