Jesus in the City #Toronto

I found Jesus down at Queen's Park, he even had a cross - it seemed to weigh him down but he carried the burden well. The Festival of Praise parade first started in 1999 and has returned annually with many different Christian organizations and churches joining together for celebration, praise and music.
The front yard of the Legislature grounds is where the different groups waited, listening to music and praise while the parade floats line the inside lane of University Avenue waiting for the parade to begin. The Saturday September 8, 2012 Parade route was Northbound on Queen's Park Crescent, east on Bloor Street, South on Yonge Street, West on College Street and back to Queen's Park Crescent.

The "Festival of Praise has sponsored a number of public events including a worship conference, a Revivalists & Reformers Symposium helping participants better understand their spiritual roots, and an Ethno Music Gospel Fest bringing together the sacred music of the nations. It has also organized a Historical Bible Fashion Show with music and drama from Bible days to the 21 st Century."
