It was a great day for it ... sunny and hot (26C).
It's not far from where we live and I walked to the Ossington entrance ... I got there about noon.
|Looking west along Dundas StreetW at Ossington|
There was something for everyone!
|Wanna play Scrabble?|
|The Clay & Paper Theatre entertained|
|You could make a collage at Monkey's Paw|
|Kids drew caricatures|
|You could learn how to dance|
|Making balloon dogs on leashes|
|These girls were trying to teach the dog how to dance|
|Kids played ball hockey near Lansdowne|
There were lots of patios and you could get a seat on a patio when I got there ... by the time I left about 5pm, they were jammed.
|Look at the size of that pitcher of beer!|
There was lots to buy if you are a shopper ... records, jewellery, clothing, hair products, World Soccer shirts and hats, etc.
|This dude walked up and down the street trying to sell this painting|
There was constant entertainment along the street.
|These ladies were dancing to the band in the above picture|
|Tyler Yarema and his Rhythm were playing on the patio of Cafe Bar|
Pasta. I'd first heard them at Michael's on Simcoe in the fall
and they were really good. I sat on the patio and listened
to a couple sets. They played blues and jazz and were awesome!
|Tom, one of the owners of Cafe Bar Pasta, and the Nickle Brook Brewery|
rep (Nickle Brook and Cameron's Brewery were giving out
beer samples) were digging the tunes
|There were lots of people dancing to this band|
Hungry? There was lots of food to choose from.
|That's MY pulled pork sandwich ... it was good|
|They made the churros there|
There were lots of people walking up and down the street.
There was a yard sale and stands near the church ... I'm assuming the proceeds go to the church.
Discover Toronto ... we've been expecting you!
We have three elections coming up in the near future ... for mayor, premier and prime minister. The candidates were out.
|Sarah Thompson walked up and down the street|
|The Green Party didn't have a booth|
... just people on the street
As I headed east along Dundas Street W towards home, there were lots of people still enjoying the festival.
It was a fun afternoon and I look forward to going again next year!
