Artists, musicians, children and an amazing community all came together to celebrate at the annual arts and music festival held in Roncesvalles Village in Toronto's west end. Roncesvalles Avenue, which is lined with mostly mom and pop shops, is known for its independent and welcoming spirit. It's the kind of place where the drycleaner will clean and press your suit for free if you're out of work and going to a job interview, where older members of the traditionally Polish neighbourhood mingle with newer "hipsters" that have gravitated here for the relaxed vibe near the lake. I've lived here for two years now and it's a big part of the reason why I've grown to love Toronto so much. Hooray for Roncy! And a big shout out and thank you to the amazing volunteers in their bright pink T-shirts who made today so much fun!
