44th Annual Forsythia Festival A Sunny Success

Aided by magnificent spring (summer?) weather, the 44th annual Forsythia Festival held May 3rd was a super day filled with smiling faces. Led by Festival King, Lenny Long and Festival Queen, Erica Benson – the parade headed off into the neighbourhood with the Lemon Bucket Orkestra sounding the charge.

After meandering through the neighbourhood, greeted by yellow flags flying from many homes, the parade ended at Wellesley Park where face painting, a bouncy castle, games, prizes, exhibitions and a well-attended food and beer tent entertained everyone for the rest of the day. Over 550 people participated in the parade and a total of approximately 700 visited us during the day.

This festival is truly a neighbourhood event and the Cabbagetown Residents Association wouldn’t be able to do it without the volunteer efforts of over 90 residents and the financial support of 68 businesses and organizations. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

Thank you to our donors!
