Taste of the Danforth

Taste of the Danforth is the biggest annual street festival held in the heart of Greektown in Toronto.  One weekend every summer, people flock to Danforth Avenue for a taste of great food and entertainment.

I like that Toronto has these festivals to celebrate the diversity in the city. Looking forward to the next one!
