Yonge Street Celebration

We went to check out the much hyped Yonge street celebration yesterday. The normal four lane road has been reduced to 2 lanes from Gerrard street to Queen street to allow for restaurants and store fronts to take over the curb lane and add planters and patios and areas for street performers to entice people to come down and enjoy what the downtown core has to offer.

I kind of liked it. It gave the city a kind of European feel to it, being able to walk down the street without traffic. I would of liked to see more street and music performers and it extended up to College street, but not a bad idea. 
Good job Toronto.
