Flying out to Vancouver today (I was terribly confused on that point until yesterday... yikes).
Went to Taste of Edmonton yesterday in downtown Edmonton, and thoroughly enjoyed the public square, the food, the atmosphere, the whole cultural feeling of it all. Even though Toronto has the Taste of the Danforth, I've never made the effort to actually go out to it. It is events like this that make me remember that the Canadian Identity really is that great mosaic that they talk about in elementary school, instead of the "anything not-American" identity that some people like to push on us (*cough* the lib party... ignore that).
When I get back to the Toronto area, I'll definitely be going to more events in and around the city. Festival City has definitely shown me a good time, but I'm sure that the GTA has just as many, if not more, opportunities for cultural exploration, and just plain fun in the sun.
