One million people party on Yonge Street at annual curb to curb celebration
  
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 7th 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
8–10, the Street Festival presented over 500 artists on four distinct sites
featuring 16 unique performance spaces all 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, offering discounts at 28 Toronto destinations,
continues until July 24. Coupons can be downloaded from www.toronto.ca/special _events.

The third annual Summerlicous promotion offering prix fixe menus at 120 of
Toronto’s top restaurants also continues until July 24.

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 www.toronto.ca/special _events.
