I've noticed signs around the Kingsway promoting this "Taste of the Kingsway" but they don't give many details as to what it's all about. I've just moved into the area and it's the first time I've noticed this event. Can anyone shed some light on this event for me. Thanks.

    I have attended the Taste of the Kingsway since its inception a few years back. It is similar to Taste of the Danforth, only on a smaller scale.

    Traffic is completely stopped on Bloor Street for a stretch of about seven blocks. The local restaurants, and there are many, range from Chinese to Italian, Spanish, Thai, French, Indian, Greek, Fish and Chips, etc. At outdoor stands, the restaurants offer samples of their food for a small fee. There are events for children, a dog show, beer garden, entertainment and special displays set up along the street.

    Simply stoll along, sample and enjoy! The one drawback is the lack of parking. If you live within walking distance, it would be wise to do so.
