#Toronto Ukrainian Festival

The Bloor West Village held their 16th annual Ukrainian Festival (@TorUkrFestival) Parade on Saturday September 15, 2012 - starting from High Park and ending at a street fair.
"In 1995, Toronto was twinned with Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, and to mark this occasion, the Toronto Ukrainian Festival was established under the umbrella of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress - Toronto Branch. Originally known as the Bloor West Village Ukrainian Festival, it was meant to be a showcase of the most widely identifiable aspects of Ukrainian culture in Canada – music, dance, food, visual arts and community. It was an instant hit, establishing itself as one of the premier Ukrainian festivals in North America and growing to attract audiences well in excess of 500,000 from across Canada, the US and abroad."
