#Toronto Buskerfest 2014 begins

Now this is worth closing the streets for! Vendors booths and performance areas are quickly being finished as the Scotiabank Buskerfest in Support of Epilepsy Toronto officially takes over the downtown Yonge Area. The buskers have already started to put on shows as the noon time launch announcements were being made and thousands of visitors and workers in the area starting filling the closed off streets.
Tonight the street performances will continue to 11 pm and start again at noon Friday. The full schedule is as follows.
Thursday August 21 noon to 11 pm 
Friday August 22 noon to 11 pm 
Saturday August 23 11 am to 11 pm
