Caught the last day of the ScotiaBank’s annual BuskerFest on Sunday. I was lucky to have heard about it because not only is the BuskerFest one of the largest street performance festivals in North America, it was also the last major Toronto festival of the summer holiday entertainment activities!
*This post contains lots of snaps of myself so it may not be the most interesting post.
The BuskerFest is a signature event for the St. Lawrence Market; an old historic center at Front St. East and Jarvis. It was definitely exciting and colorful; filled with acrobats, magicians, clowns, and yes… even aliens! If only cameras could capture the smells as well!
It was definitely a lot of fun – perhaps better had I someone to go with! Hopefully I can check out all three days at the next one!
A couple of my classrooms; the liberal arts rooms look basically what they’re supposed to look like. Nothing fancy; no classic wood or cathedral ceilings, no glass walls or high tech equipment. Just simple, high school-like studios and lecture halls.
Next door is the Art Gallery of Ontario, of course. We have free access as OCAD students with a valid student ID. I picked up mine this morning; my picture turned out terrible!! They took two pictures; one where I was half-blinking, and the other was good. But they used the half-blinking one. -.-
A poutine from lunch.
A couple days ago also met up with a few OCAD students. We sort of moped around a few streets and crowded around a mini table at Starbucks. Afterwards, a couple of the girls went to Cafe Crepe. I had a Spinach Feta Cheese Crepe; $10. It was good, but waaayyy to salty for my taste… and expensive.
Well, my orientation week officially starts tomorrow! I’m not sure if I should bring my DSLR, or if it would just be a heavy inconvenience.
