Why: Scheduled for July 9 - 11, 2004, the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival
transforms five intersections along the world's longest street, giving the
right of way to a curb-to-curb celebration of tastes, talent and all that is
Toronto. Yonge Street, where it intersects with Dundas St., Bloor St., St.
Clair Ave., Eglinton Ave. and Lawrence Ave., is converted into a stage for free
entertainment that covers the artistic spectrum. Named the "Best Festival" at
the 2004 Canadian Event Industry Association's Star Awards, this sizzling
summer festival stimulates audiences' senses with hot entertainment to see,
cool music to hear and delicious food to savour. For more information on the
festival the public can visit http://www.toronto.ca or call 416-338-0338.
