Hello From Toronto – Partying At The Celebrate Toronto Street Festival And Afrofest
So many festivals to choose from, so little time….. This weekend Toronto had so many special events to offer, there simply wasn’t enough time to attend them all. Here are just a few samples of some of the major events offered on the July 7 to 9 weekend:
– Afrofest, a celebration of African culture, located at Queen’s Park
– The Bud Light Beats, Breaks & Culture ,Toronto’s Electronic Music Festival at Harbourfront Centre
– Italian food and lots of live music at the Corso Italia Toronto Fiesta
– Toronto’s best known theatre festival: the Fringe of Toronto Theatre Festival
– High-speed high-octane fun at the Molson Grand Prix of Toronto at Exhibition Place
– The Canada Dry Festival of Fireworks at Ontario Place
– The Taste of Lawrence Festival on Lawrence Street East, and
– The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition features more than 500 artists at Nathan Phillips Square.
The number of choices is virtually endless and with limited time it’s sometimes difficult to choose which event to attend. I had a few hours today and decided to hop on my bike to check out the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival, and if there was any time left over I would also drop by at Afrofest.
Equipped with my camera and a big backpack I cycled in through Toronto’s ravine and park system. On my way in I was able to almost completely avoid regular roads and enjoy the serenity of some of Toronto’s many nature areas. In Sunnybrook Park huge groups of people were unloading entire regular-sized barbecues from their minivans for a day in the park. Through the tranquil tree-framed streets of Leaside I made my way west to finally arrive on Yonge Street, just north of Eglinton.
It wasn’t quite noon yet and the big street party hadn’t yet fully gotten off the ground. A variety of rides were set up for kids and slowly but surely lineups started to form in front of each high-adrenaline attraction. Various restaurants had set up booths featuring samples of their menu at reasonable prices and a big concert stage would showcase a variety of talent throughout the day.
I stopped at the Fit One booth which was going to hold a cheerleading competition at 12 noon. An emcee picked out three moms and three dads from the crowd. The moms were going to rehearse the Fit One Cheer, while the men were learning a brief sequence of dance steps that would be judged by the growing audience. The three men gave it their best and the winning contestant added a few additional flashy dance steps to his performance and definitely managed to charm the crowd.
Then the ladies came on the stage and they got to perform their cheer as a group and then individually. Again, the winner would win a prize for their performance. With the amateur portion of this contest complete, two young men and a young women came on to show off their acrobatic cheerleading act. The two guys kept twirling the girl around, lifting her up so she would stand upright on their hands. They had had several years of training for this performance.
It was time for me to move on, and as I pushed my bike on the sidewalk, I saw three generously proportioned “ladies” doing poses and hamming it up. At one point one of them fell over with her legs up in the air, and an audience member was asked to join in to help her up. I am not quite sure if they were indeed ladies, but the members of “Cie Colbok: “Niki” have been enchanting crowds at street festivals in France, Germany, Spain, Great Britain and many more with their flirtatious clowning around.
My ride on Yonge Street, usually one of Toronto’s busiest streets, was extremely peaceful and tranquil since the majority of motorists had decided to avoid the Yonge Street corridor altogether due to the street closures of the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival. It’s a strangely empowering feeling cycling down one of Toronto’s main thoroughfares without having to worry about getting pushed off by sometimes inconsiderate drivers.
St. Clair was the next festival location and the Scotiabank Big Band Stage was going to feature a variety of jazz, big band and even operetta music. I happened upon the highly unusual and innovative performance of “Lelavision”, composed of Ela Lamblin and Leah Mann – two musicians and performance artists from Seattle. When I arrived they were wearing drums on their heads, hips and knees and were performing a playful drumming act with one another. Shortly after they pulled out an instrument called the “Violcano”, a cone-shaped metal drum equipped with strings, apparently a mixture between a viola and a volcano. The two artists played the instrument with strings, plucked it and even climbed in and out of it, adding an element of physical acrobatics to this unusual way of producing music.
Finally, they played the “Longwave”, a horizontal harp with strings that are not plucked but brushed with gloved hands. Some of the music even sounded like Irish folk music and the polyphonic harmonies were very pleasing to the ear. This innovative combination of music, unusual instruments, dance and physical performance was highly extraordinary yet extremely aesthetic, and Lelavision attracted a sizeable crowd of fans who stayed behind after the performance to chat and find out more about this unique art form.
Inspired from this creative performance I got hungry and rode a bit further south along Yonge Street until I landed at the Scotiabank Jazz Café that featured a sitting area with tables, followed by a variety of restaurant booths that were providing samples of their cuisine. I ordered a butter chicken with basmati rice from the Bombay Bhel restaurant and sat down to listen for a few minutes to the pleasant sounds of the Donna Barber Trio. I joined a retired gentleman at a table, who looked at my bike and started a pleasant conversation about biking in the city. We both agreed that Toronto offers superb biking opportunities all throughout the city. After almost 50 years of marriage his wife had passed away last year, but he has been working on adjusting to his new life and likes to come out and enjoy Toronto’s outdoor festivals and events. Just recently he had attended a free outdoor performance of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Harbourfront. After I had finished my lunch he said goodbye since he was going to catch a performance at the Big Band Stage.
My next stop was at the “Comedy Stop”, at a stage featuring the “Monkey Toast Players”: Lisa Merchant (of “Train 48” fame), David Shore (an instructor at the Second City Training Centre) and Carolyn Taylor (a Second City alumna). Together with several other performers they make up an award-winning group of standup comedians that performs regularly at the Drake Hotel. Today they were performing a variety of improvised sketches that involved various elements of audience participation. For one sketch two audience members had to come on stage and finish the comedians’ sentence on cue. For another sketch two audience members got to move the comedians’ limbs and bodies to provide the physical backdrop to the conversation. Finally, audience members got to choose a location which would fit on the stage (“New York City”, I guess if you try hard enough NYC will fit on the stage after all) and they had written down a variety of phrases that the comedians had to integrate into their performance which featured a scene involving a hot dog vendor in New York City. The show was very much along the lines of “Whose Line Is This Anyway?” and the crew’s improvisational talents were quite impressive.
Now it was time to cycle further south so I went past Bloor Street, where the sidewalks on the east and west side of Yonge Street really started to fill up with regular shoppers and weekend revelers. I went west on Wellesley until I hit my final destination: Queen’s Park, which was hosting “Afrofest”, Toronto’s celebration of African culture and music. The festival is in its 18th year and is now officially North America’s largest and longest running African music festival. The audience was very colourful and virtually every ethnic group in Toronto was represented in the audience somewhere.
A big stage was designated for the feature performers and several other areas were set up for drummers and other musicians. A multitude of booths was selling African clothing, arts and crafts, and a big area was dedicated to children that featured dance performances and a variety of arts activities for children. Young ones were receiving body paintings and a huge food court served a variety of tasty African and Caribbean delicacies. I had a chat with several women from Congo who were sitting together peeling and cutting plantains. Right next door several young girls who originally came from Zambia and were selling their local delicacies at a stand. The crowd had spread out their blankets on the lawn and the festival was truly an event for the whole family.
By about 4 pm it was time for me to head home and I started cycling east on the Danforth. Traffic was fairly light, I guess many people were glued to their television screens to watch the Soccer World Cup finals between France and Italy. Sure enough, at about 4:30 pm I started to hear horns honking, people screaming with joy and crowds streaming out of some of the cafes and bars on the eastern part of the Danforth: Italy had won the World Cup!!!!! Hundreds of people were coming out into the street, cheering, chanting “Italy” and waving flags.
Proof after all, that Toronto’s vibrant multicultural mosaic is alive and well, and everyone is invited to party….
The Rolling Stones

2. Only Rock ‘n Roll
3. Get Off My Cloud
4. She’s A Rainbow
5. Under My Thumb
6. It’s All Over Now
7. Don’t Stop
9. The Last Time
1. You Can’t Always Get What You Want
Mere days after their release of “Beggar’s Banquet” in 1968, the band pulled together a real-life circus of a show. Designed as a television spectacle consisting of real circus performers, and some top rock acts of the day. Jethro Tull, The Who and Eric Clapton were in attendance, as were lions, trapeze artists, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The kind of show you might only now see on the very best of David Letterman.
The idea was to produce a unique showcase, but the footage was eventually shelved and hidden away for nearly 3 decades due to what was deemed sub-standard performances. It was not shown publicly for 27 years, except for brief excerpts in home videos. The Who’s performance of “A Quick One” was used in their own film/career documentary, “The Kids Are Alright”. The true landmark of the show for The Rolling Stones was it was Brian Jones’ last performance with the band.
2. Only Rock ‘n Roll
Before the Rolling Stones had galvanized their name as the World Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the late ’60s, they had already laid a handsome claim to the title. The Beatles had paved the way for the British Invasion, but the Rolling Stones pioneered the gritty, hard-pounding blues-infused rock and roll that now defines the genre. Mick Jagger might be a tiny little man by many standards, but with no question he is the biggest front man to ever grace a rock stage. Wild. Macho. Campy. Sexy. He created the role of the rockstar.
3. Get Off My Cloud
To nightcap their hugely successful 1969 North American tour, the band planned a large, free concert in San Francisco similar to a successful concert they had done in London’s Hyde Park earlier that summer. But between permit denials, greed and a last-minute change of venue, the event spiraled from what was potentially a West Coast Woodstock to a jumbled chaotic mess.
Things turned for the worse with their bad choice of security, the biker gang the “Hell’s Angels”, contributing to a day-long sideshow of brutal violence and truly bad vibes. By the time the Stones took the stage that evening, things had already come undone with a dramatic stabbing of spectator by one of the Hell’s Angels. The stabbing was captured on film in the documentary, “Gimme Shelter”.
4. She’s A Rainbow
The band’s longtime acquaintance with law enforcement started with an infamous ‘pissing’ incident in March of 1965. Bill Wyman needed to use the restroom at a gas station, but was refused admittance and told to promptly vacate the premises. Mick Jagger and Brian Jones joined Bill in pissing against a wall, and the Rolling Stones’ image as bad boys was firmly established. In a remarkable show of solidarity and opportunism, which was not to be repeated, all five-band members showed up at court, several weeks later.
5. Under My Thumb
How can you be the next Keith Richards? Well, asides from several obvious personal decisions, to get his legendary sound, first you’re going to need to go out and get yourself a Fender Telecaster. Keith plays in open G tuning with his own customized 5-string version. Take your low E string off the guitar and then tune it low to high as GDGBD. You can always tune the low E string to D as well if you’re not into removing the sixth string. Keith sums up his approach with a simple phrase that only he could truly relate, “5 strings, 3 fingers, and one ***hole.” There’s no one like Keith Richards.
6. It’s All Over Now
The famous tongue and lip design and countless variations of such has graced countless official and unofficial Rolling Stones memorabilia and products since it first appeared when the band formed “Rolling Stones Records” in 1971. Credit for the creation of the original design has been mistakenly given to several people over the years. Many have stated that Andy Warhol was the originator. He did design two album covers for the band, but not the tongue design. In 1995, Billboard Magazine printed that it was from the mind of Ruby Mazur. Discovering their mistake, they later corrected their statement, identifying Mazur as the designer of the first official variation of the tongue design. With further research later that year, Billboard definitely uncovered that the original classic design came from John Pasch. Two years later, Mick Jagger confirmed that Pasch was the originator of the fabled logo.
7. Don’t Stop
Rolling Stones museum, anyone? Former Rolling Stones member, Bill Wyman operates a restaurant entitled, “Sticky Fingers” in the well-to-do Kensington section of London. The food is nothing to write home about, unless you consider the cuisine at the Hard Rock Café something to die for. The prices are so-so, no more than the one-two punch inflicted by Planet Hollywood fare.
What’s special here is that the whole place is a shrine the legendary rockers. Jam-packed with posters, magazine covers, guitars, gold discs and the like. Most of time, as you might imagine, you’ll be enjoying the soothing sounds of Stones tune while you munch your fish and chips.
If you never get a chance to stand live in the crowd and soak the sound waves as they emit straight from the wall of loud speakers, then the next best chance at the excitement is one many films made from their various shows. Perhaps the most famous is from their 1972 North American tour. Titled, “Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones”, unfortunately the screening of it can prove difficult. Originally released in Quadraphonic sound, the original soundtrack, record as it is on the film in an unusual manner requires considerable labor to view properly. The effort is occasionally undertaken, as it was done in a September 1996 screening at New York’s Lincoln Center. Hmmm, maybe it would be easier to just see them live after all.
9. The Last Time
Is this their last world tour? They’ve been fielding that question ever since they were first asked it way back in 1966. Mick Jagger turned 59 this past July 26th and Keith Richards turns 59 on December 18th. Jagger will be 60 by the time they wrap up their European tour, perhaps that’s old enough to retire, but we’re betting that they’ll be back as long as they’re around. Why stop now?

The Real Thing About Fundraising
Fundraising is both challenging as it is rewarding. Raising the needed fund for a worthy cause is indeed spiritually and emotionally satisfying. Every school organization may want to extend a helping hand to those folks who are in dire need. The prospect beneficiary could either be a charitable institution, an orphanage, a community project, and the likes. However, no matter how pure the intention is, school funds can be exceptionally tight. Even the school itself needs aid from people who have a kind heart to give out donations.
When your school organization aims to help out through whatever possible means regardless of who or which is the beneficiary, fundraising is just the most precise thing to do.

Apart from all other glorifying aspects which fundraising generate, one’s creativity, organizational skills, communication dexterities, and firmness as likewise enhanced.

Wit Under The Keyboard
For me, the piano is the symbol of just what is tight, proper and also elegant. It doesn’t have errors, this is actually excellent. Pianists are actually the absolute most perfectionist folks worldwide. They ought to certainly not and also can not make oversights specifically when executing. That is just how I looked at the piano as well as the pianists. But at that point, I only determined I mistook. A handful of researches and also I have once more verified that appeals can be tricking.
The pianists our company observe play appear to be the most professional and respectable superstars on show business. They hold the energy and the breathing of the audiences. They could appear discourageding in their formal meets and also the authorization and also the air of arrogance they show while on stage. They could be fascinating.
