It's a record-breaking hot day today (34 degrees celsius, 93 fahrenheit) in Toronto, but there's a breeze and not too much smog. This has made it a fantastic Saturday in the city. I've spent the day walking around town and remember what I like so much about Toronto: the parties everywhere. Just today from walking around I saw:
The Muhtadi Drum Festival in Queen's Park.
some event with hordes of children in Dufferin Grove Park
Live Graffiti Art with hip-hop DJs behind the Drake in West Queen West
Live Music underneath several hundred audience-sensing balloons at Dundas Square
The Parachute Club playing punk music (?!) outside the funky OCAD building
Something with a wild cheering crowd at City Hall, but I was too far away to figure out what it was
... and that's just from walking around without even trying to find an event. I gather that if I had walked a bit further east and south I would have collided with Woofstock.
