Taking Back The Street

Somehow I missed posting any pics from the "Salsa On St Clair" street festival which took place in July and for 2 days over a weekend closed several blocks of St Clair Ave to traffic including the streetcars. The festival is a celebration of Latin culture and includes lots of food booths, Salsa dancing and great entertainment. As you can see there were lots of people on the street, even on the streetcar tracks, but I'm not sure how many of them go into any of the local businesses. Hopefully they return to the neighbourhood later to shop. Another pic tomorrow.

Looks like the event drew a big crowd. I'd be heading to those food booths if I was there.

This is a fine street scene of the people enjoying the special occasion. Nice one.

Not sure I would like it, but it would be a source of many photo-ops...

Not sure how the streetcar is going to make it through that crowd.

It does look like fun!

If you are like me, you are always finding that you have more pix than days to show them. But, I resist starting up another blog for the overflow.
