Last summer my husband and I decided to try to go to as many local events as we could manage. Luckily we live in Toronto and there’s a lot of events and festivals happening throughout the summer. Pretty much every weekend actually!
We had so much fun last year that we decided to do it again this year. I think there’s a jazz festival beginning this week and then later in the month we’ll go to WoofStock (biggest dog festival in North America) and a few Ribfests.
That should fill up the weekends in June! When July and August come around we’ve got Carribanna (with cool stainless steel drums ) street festivals, Taste of the Danforth, more music festivals and so on.
Since we’re not planning a “real” vacation this summer I think this is the best way to get out and do things and have fun in the city. Most of the events are free or fairly inexpensive so it won’t cost us much at all.
What are your plans for the summer? Do you ever go to local events?
