The 5th annual event is billed as two days of car-free fun in Bloordale! There were performers playing at the Nestle Stage and the Duffy's Stage, along with roving entertainers along the street. Stores along the route offered special-in store savings and some had prizes.

Their was a lot of fun with the lovely ladies of the dunk tank
