It looks so easy because of volunteer dedication
  
Toronto Special Events -- The Celebrate Toronto Street Festival presented by
Shoppers Drug Mart transforms five major intersections along the world's
longest street, Yonge Street, into a world-class, free one-of-a-kind festival
on July 4 - 6, 2003. Volunteers generously donate their time to these summer
programs ensuring the programming runs smoothly and remains fun for all.

Toronto Special Events volunteers fill key positions at our year-round
festivals and events providing a sense of warm community spirit. Currently,
there is a team of more than 1,000 volunteers with very diverse backgrounds -
from service clubs to cultural groups - coming together to celebrate our city
and actively participate in their neighbourhood.

Toronto Special Events is proud to receive the support of:

Buddha's Light International Association of Toronto
Foresters
Scouts Canada - Greater Toronto Council.

The Celebrate Toronto Street Festival presented by Shoppers Drug Mart
transforms five major intersections along the world's longest street, Yonge
Street, into a world-class, free one-of-a-kind festival. Scheduled for July 4
- 6, 2003, the multi award-winning Celebrate Toronto Street Festival honours
the city's rich culture and diversity with spectacular performances by local,
national and international artists. The festival, which draws more than one
million revellers each year, is a great stop for locals and tourists alike to
toast this great city.

Admission to the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival is FREE and getting there
couldn't be easier. All five festival sites are accessible via the Toronto
Transit Commission (TTC). Festival subway stops on the Yonge line are Dundas,
Bloor, St. Clair, Eglinton and Lawrence stations. TTC one-day passes can be
purchased for $7.75.
