Toronto by Night

While Donna's brother Gary and his family were here, they were keen to check out the "big smoke" of Toronto city. After a fairly full day in Niagara, a decision was made to stay on the Eastbound QEW and drive through to Toronto. The traffic was very heavy - fairly typical for a Friday rush hour in Toronto. In fact, I'm told that traffic in Toronto is heavy pretty much every day. Nevertheless, we eventually got into the downtown area and found a parking spot just near the Air Canada Centre.

It was busy in town. The Bluejays were playing the New York Mets at the Rogers Centre, Cirque de Soliel was showing at the ACC, and the city was getting ready for the weekend's Gay Pride events... Toronto has one of the largest gay and lesbian festivals in North America, and the Gay Pride march on the weekend was expected to have over 100,000 participants and around a million spectators. In other words, the city was pretty busy.

We went for dinner at the Richtree Market, where we'd been a few weeks ago with Sharilou and Mark's family. Great food and reasonable prices, but keep track of what you're spending if you go there, as it tends to add up pretty quickly. After dinner we walked around a bit, ending up at the CN Tower. Gary was keen to see the view from the top, so he took his family and Kate up there while Donna, Alex and I just looked around a bit near the base of the Tower. While we waited the 'Jays game finished, and there were people everywhere.

The tower viewers finally returned and we took a final stroll back to the carpark before heading back to Oakville after a very long and busy day.
