684. Toronto Street Festivals – June 11, 18, 25-26, 2016

I love walking on streets usually dominated by cars and trucks. It’s even better when there are lots of things to see, do and eat. They are great places to see multicultural Toronto. Count the different nationalities in each and let me know. Ruth
