It looks like the summer event season has started here in in Toronto.
Last weekend we took our dog down to Woofstock – the largest festival for dogs in North America. We had a lot of fun – but of course our dog, Midnight, had a ball. We went on Saturday and walked around looking at all the booths and meeting other dogs and dog owners for several hours. Midnight was wiped by the time we got home and she slept a good part of Sunday as well. Nothing like a tired Lab every once in a while. Maybe we’ll take her to Winter Woofstock in November.
This weekend we have the Beach Rib Fest to attend. It starts tomorrow afternoon and runs through until Sunday 8 pm.
I love ribs. Mmmmmm. There are going to be several award winning rib vendors, a beer tent and live bands. It should be fun.
We went last year on the last day and they didn’t have any more ribs left. Sigh … so we tried pulled pork. I don’t think that I’ve ever had it before and I didn’t like it all that much … so this year we’d better get some ribs.
If it’s anything like the other ribfests that we went to last year the ribs will be tasty but kind of expensive. I’ve heard the best way to sample ribs at a ribfest is to only buy a half rack from a vendor and maybe get another half rack at another vendor. If my husband does the same thing at different rib vendors we can end up trying out four different rib places. Oh and have very full tummies. Hmm … maybe I’d better dust off my fitness equipment and do a round on the elliptical after coming home from the ribfest. LOL
Last weekend we drove buy one of the Luminato events, but didn’t attend. Perhaps we’ll go to Luminato this weekend as well. We can catch a performance or see some musicians.
I wonder what’s happening in Toronto next weekend … I’d better look it up. Going to local free or cheap events is a great way to have some summer fun.
