Rainy weekend smorgasbord in Toronto

Spring like weather decided to come back for an early summer drenching of the Pride Parade weekend. The parades go on - rain or shine, just a little more moist than when everyone is shooting squirt guns. Toronto's Digital Dreams Festival was cancelled on Saturday as they monitor the weather for Sunday's show still scheduled to proceed. The rain would also put a little damper on neighbourhood parties like the Brazilian Block Party, the Taste of Asia, Ribfest and Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington Market. Hopefully the weather will be perfect for some of the upcoming outdoor festivals like the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival.
If it wasn't the weather, it was the upcoming Pan Am Games that are complicating fun in the City. The annual Chin Picnic was moved from the Canada Day weekend in Exhibition Place to mid June in Little Italy. The Chin Bikini contest went from the Bandshell Stage to a private club. Honda Indy Toronto also moved from July to mid-June and suffered through a bit of rain as well.
