Before The Crowds

Last weekend was the annual Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition which has taken place in the square in front of our City Hall for almost 50 years. A village of white tents containing the displays of the artists pops up for the weekend and fills the whole square. This pic was taken early on last Sunday morning while the artists were just arriving and the hordes of spectators had yet to arrive.

A rather good setting for that. We had something like that in late June here, artists in tents in one of our parks.

Lovely location for an Art Exhibition, sounds like quite a tradition.

I see the early photographer gets the shot. Nicely done. Our Art in The Park is this weekend. We got three inches of rain this morning.

What a fab shot Pat.. Is all that organization just for the weekend? Did you go?

EG CameraGirl said...

So much to see! I bet the place was very crowded a few hours after you took this shot.

We were there in Saturday after the International Lions' Club parade so it was packed.
