OPA, well it’s that time of the year again everyone! Get out anything with the colours of Blue and White and let’s head on down to the Danforth.
This is a Toronto neighbourhood festival that show cases the Greek community. It is in it’s 15th year and there is definitely no signs of this unique Greek event slowing down any time soon!
Basically for the Taste of the Danforth, they shut down the Danforth Ave. for 3 days to car traffic. They close the Danforth down from Jones to Broadview during this time. Local Greek and non-Greek merchants show off the wares to around 1.2 million people this weekend. They help celebrate the Greek way of life, which is relaxing while dining on their tasty and very nutritious delicacy’s! And let’s not forget the light refreshing beverage of REAL GREEK Ouzo. My favorite hands down is spanakopita! God I could eat this stuff all day.
Even though the weather is not all that favorable right now, I’m sure the kidz are eating, drinking, dancing and having a blast right now.
So here’s to all my Greek and non Greek neighbours down the street having a ball.
P.S. Yes I will keep it down for all of you, real early in the morning when I take my doggie Midnight out for her morning constitution. You know, in case you just got into bed at that point of the festivities.
Keep on Jammin’ Opa!
