Firstly because it was within walking distance but also because I have always loved this part of Bloor St.. In all of the urban renewal I hope these shops are kept in tact.
As busy as it was this was actually a very comfortable walk. Like most festivals it also feels like a bit like a sidewalk sale but offers much more! Lots of amazing activities for kids of all ages.
This drum concoction is awesome and looks like a great way to take out some pent-up frustrations. The food was also incredible and served up by some of the local eateries that make this such a great part of town. The music was also everywhere, not only on the two stages, but also on the street. From local musicians to a free drum lesson, all very entertaining. I got the chance to catch a set by the Devah Quartet, a Toronto based electric string quartet with a drummer that delighted the crowd with some progressive and original rock tunes! Well worth the listen. An extremely enjoyable event and everyone there certainly had fun as well. As always enjoy Toronto !~
