Hello From Toronto Free Music, Great Food And Street Life At Torontos Taste Of Little Italy
Festival season is in full swing. Summer is a great time to be in Toronto since there are multiple events going on at the same time. I had just heard about the Taste of Little Italy street festival and decided to partake of a little free-admission Italo-style celebration.
When I got there yesterday at about noon the restaurants and bands were still setting up. Streets were closed all the way from Euclid to Shaw and everyone was working feverishly to prepare for the 3rd and final day of this years Taste of Little Italy. All the major bars and restaurants had big screen TVs to beam the live Brazil-Australia World Cup match to a crowd of avid soccer fans.
At the heart of Little Italy is the CHIN Building, headquarters of Torontos first multicultural / multilingual radio station, founded by famous Italian-Canadian entrepreneur and community leader Johnny Lombardi. CHIN broadcasts in more than 30 languages in Toronto, in more than 18 languages in Ottawa/Gatineau and is available via satellite all across North America.
Little Italy is one of Torontos most popular...
