The following message is from Councillor Mark Grimes’ Office:
Just a reminder that this weekend is the 10th annual Lakeshore Mardi Gras!
Singles, couples and families will enjoy the refreshing open-air ambience of the Lakeshore Mardi Gras in a natural park setting in the heart of the beautiful Lakeshore community. Taking place over a four-day period from August 2,3,4,5, the community-based event draws its inspiration from the world famous Mardi Gras held annually in New Orleans.
Last year the event was a huge success and this year promises to be bigger and better with a few surprises.
Participants will be able to sample a wide variety of cuisines, while enjoying Dixie, Jazz and Blues bands in one of the largest most beautiful parks in Toronto, Colonel Samuel Smith Park, on the historic Lakeshore Grounds.
Live music will play on the main stage and buskers will perform dazzling displays of entertainment.
There will also be a kid’s zone, interactive games, and food vendors, a midway, and market vendors offering arts, crafts, jewellery and more.
