summer festivities ahead

Because of today’s gorgeous weather… reminded me that Summer is pretty much around the corner (*crosses fingers*), which urged me to consult http://www.blogto.com/ for a list of all the annual festivals and events for the next 3-ish months… here’s a list of events I typically aim to attend (but often fail to…. due to a gazillion summer school deadlines – which is probably the case again this year!)

In chronological order (of course!):

  • Doors Open (May 29th – 30th) – I’ve only been twice, but it’s not nearly enough! Actually missed it last year, even though I was at “home”… great opportunity to visit roof-top gardens (in my opinion!) and explore the beautiful architecture of Toronto’s cityscape… http://www.toronto.ca/doorsopen/
  • Luminato (June 11th – 20th) – I haven’t been able to attend this yet, but I was captivated by Kurt Perschke’s RED BALL project :) this huge rubber ball showed up around the city “stuck” in certain places around Toronto (but in actuality, it’s been around the globe!) … I really wish I got to take a picture with it… (check out: http://redballproject.com/) But arts festivals are always lively :) – http://www.luminato.com/2010/
  • Summerlicious (starts July 9th) – I can’t even remember if I went last year… I think I only ended up doing Winterlicious…*sigh – anyone planning to attend this year? Some highlights from last year’s best restaurants: http://www.torontolife.com/features/best-summerlicious-2009/
  • Taste of the Danforth (August 6th – 9th) – I went one year and it wasn’t too bad :) If I go again this year… I will try more Greek food *mmm lamb skewers! =] http://www.tasteofthedanforth.com/tasteofthedanforth.php
  • Night It Up – dates TBC … night market in markham – smelly tofu? HAHA usually a pretty fun night :) I remember going last year and it was fairly cold *eeeek http://nightitup.com/
