Last night was pretty incredible for a Thursday evening in the East End of Toronto. The Beaches Jazz Festival Street Fest kicked off. Queen Street East through the Beaches is closed from 6pm-12am. There are over 50 bands performing along the stretch along with a number of vendors; food, clothing, accessories etc.
I have been going to this event since I was a young kid and all I can say is WOW! The change I have seen since then is unreal. It has really turned into one of Toronto premier events of the year. When I was young it was more like a community get together with a few local artists but now it is huge and has people attending from all over the place.
This year Essentia decided to support this great event and go full on and get a band playing in front of our store. They are a local Toronto band called Juice and they are pretty fantastic. Come on by and check them out.
If you are planning on coming into the showroom tonight after 6pm please remember to bring your walking shoes as access to the store by car will be very limited.
