One million people attend annual curb to curb celebration Yonge Street
  
A combination of incredible entertainment and spectacular weather brought an estimated audience of one million residents and tourists out onto Yonge Street this weekend for the 8th annual Celebrate Toronto Street Festival.

The festival transforms Yonge Street, the longest street in the world, into a curb to curb celebration of tastes, talent and all that is Toronto. From July 7-9, the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival presented over 500 artists on four distinct sites on Yonge Street - at Dundas, St. Clair, Eglinton and Lawrence.

The Celebrate Toronto Street Festival wraps up tonight at 8 pm.

The Celebrate Toronto Passport promotion, offering discounts at 20 Toronto attractions, continues until July 23. Printable coupons are available at http://www.toronto.ca/special_events.

The 4th annual Summerlicious promotion also continues through July 23, offering prix fixe menus at 130 of Toronto’s top restaurants.

For more information on the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival, the Summerlicious restaurant promotion or the Celebrate Toronto Passport, the public can call Access Toronto at 416-338-0338 or visit http://www.toronto.ca/special_events.
