BuskerFest will be taking over the Yonge Street – stretching along Yonge from Queen Street all the way to College Street. Admission to the event is by donation to Epilepsy Toronto. Don’t forget to bring along cash to “throw in the hat” for the buskers who amaze and astonish you.

The Scotiabank BuskerPlay Kids Zone will be hopping with plenty of activities for kids to enjoy. Located in Trinity Square Park, the Kids Zone caters specially to kids. Families will find face painting, balloon-twisting, free workshops and a dress-up area. The Scotiabank BuskerPlay Stage will have daily shows to entertain families. Stop by the ScotiaBank tent where families will find more clowns, face painting and music. The best part is that activities are free of charge.

In my "previous life" I was a mental health professional...in my current life I'm a stay-at-home mom with 2 beautifully adventurous kids. I share everything that lands on my kitchen counter over on my blog, Kitchen Counter Chronicles. Swing by and learn how we are greening their lives; what we are crafting; what we are cooking and what we are reading. While you will often find the girls and I inside the kitchen, you will also find us out and about getting our hands dirty, exploring and learning outdoors.
