Since I've started writing this blog and reading other family travel blogs, I've decided to try and explore my city as if I were a tourist and take advantage of all the wonderful festivals and events that are happening around Toronto this summer.
This past weekend, I took some of my own advice and visited this year's Totstock festival. The festival is in its third year and caters to the young and young-at-heart. We arrived shortly after the festival opened at 2 pm, parked our stroller in the unofficially designated area and quickly explored the compact festival. In addition to a play area loaded with empty cardboard boxes for all the aspiring architects and engineers, there was a bandstand with some fun local acts (we listened to Hooded Fang, a great band that managed to get kids and adults dancing together), a Story Tent, lots of fun games and crafts, and a few yummy food stalls. Our favourite was the Barque Smokehouse booth. We loved the sliders and JR devoured not one, but two, cobs of corn.
