The Toronto Jazz Festival was on this past week. Last Saturday my husband and I went to see a couple of bands perform in Kew Gardens in the Beaches. We made some sandwiches, packed some drinks and brought some folding chairs – oh and we brought our dog Midnight along with us as well and we spent the afternoon enjoying some fantastic music. We saw a band called the Heavyweights Brass Band and then we listened to Leona Boyd perform.
After the performances in the park were over we walked down to the boardwalk with our dog and let our dog loose in the off leash area. Naturally, being a Labrador Retriever she went straight to the water and had a swim in Lake Ontario. As usual we had a terrible time getting her out of the water. She just like a little kid that doesn’t want to get out of the pool!
When we were finished spending some time at the beach we walked back up to Queen street. We were headed back towards our car, but of course we had every intention of walking on Queen for the Jazz street fest. Oh and we did .. we enjoyed several bands playing as we walked. The music was amazing and everyone there seemed to be having a great time!
I love this city. There’s so many great festivals and free events like this to attend. I love it.
