Luminato: Cardboard Beach

The Joy of Festival makes #Toronto a more artistic city as @Luminato brings a mixture of free and paid events from June 6 to 15, 2014. A weekend in summer is always better around a beach and we found one down at the Festival Hub in Peacut Square - only it wasn't a typical sandy beach, this one was made from cardboard.
There was a lifeguard station, just missing Pamela Anderson, umbrellas, reclining chairs and unusual shapes that would be at home on a french beach during D-Day. The urban square between Metro Hall and Roy Thomson Hall is often a host to some great events and concerts and the large Luminato stage set up right now will bring several concerts to the arts festival.
Arriving in the early afternoon on Sunday, June 8 we realized that the days entertainment was not to start until later in the afternoon. With several hours to kill until we could spin the OLG prize wheel we took time to look up the festival schedule. And here are my picks of stuff I would like to see - Green Porno Live on Stage (conceived and performed by Isabella Rossellini), Cardboard Beach (free - Los Carpinteros transform the Festival Hub), Buffy Sainte-Marie (8pm June 10 at the Festival Hub) and that's it for this year. Take a look at their extensive schedule and look for some performances that peak your interest.

“Luminato began as a dream that each year Toronto would invite the world to join us in celebrating creativity. A dream where the best artists in the world and the best artists in Canada fill the stage that is Toronto with new and wonderful creations. A dream that we could create in Toronto a festival that would become renowned the world over for its excellence, its originality and its accessibility to all people regardless of background or experience.
