A sun day on fathers day

Sunday saw the threat of rain for most of the day, but that did not discourage me from grabbing my bike and heading down to Toronto. I parked myself in the underground parking at City Hall (cause if it rained, i wanted to head under cover if I had to unpack everything and head out!), and saw that nothing was going on there, so I headed over to Yonge Dundas and was rewarded with lots of things going on, most connected with NXNE.
For a penny, you could help yourself to a Monster Beverage, handed out by these lovely ladies!

If you wanted another form of food energy, there was free samples of Ben & Jerry's ice cream,

or a chocolate mustache courtesy of Phillips!

I then biked my way up north to Bloor St, just west of Bay for the Yorkville Car Show. Lots of money was on display, like this row of german engineering!

All the cars were protected by a crack team of security agents!

Of course all those cars wouldn't be as interesting without some "pit babes"!

Also in the area was this lovely Carabram girl, in a great costume,

A gorgeous girl enjoying the great cars!

While Cartier had this very beautiful woman inviting you into their store,

And Wind Mobile had free cotton candy available for the kids!

I wasn't the only "media" around, as Global TV had a crew wandering the site doing spot interviews with some of the many on hand to see the cars.

I headed back to Yonge Dundas, and found even more women on hand, including these four jagermeister models,

Moosehead girls were on hand to pour you a cold one

or you could try out some "twisted tea" for something a little different on a hot day!

Now, what this guy was doing, I really just don't know!

Playstation was also in the square, letting you know about their system.

And speaking of playing, it was NXNE and playing on stage was Marie Hines. She has a great voice, and it was great to hear her sing, all the while playing a piano.

She had some cd's available, and I was lucky to meet her a pick up two of her disks.

Heading over to Queen and John, it was MMVA time at Much Music. Lots of people on hand, and lots of agencies out advertising themselves to those perfect demographics, young teens!

At the show itself,  CTV's Ashley Rowe was introducing the start of the event.

I think I saw someone famous, but who knows!

After that I headed to David Pecaut Square for the Toronto Symphony outdoor concert featuring the 1812 Overture, all part of Luminato. On hand were members of the Fort York Guard.  
They marched onto the stage at the begining of the event.

Also as part of Luminato, there were audience members dressed in period costumes enjoying the concert.

There was a good sized crowd on hand to enjoy the music.


And with that, I called it a day!
