So on the third day I got up and headed out to the Toronto Pride Parade with John. Got to ride the subway again and it was very crowded with people heading in to the parade as well as other people just going places. Everything in Toronto is done to a large scale but I was still a little surprised by the size of the crowd and the number of people in the parade. There were lots of fun and interesting things to see and I even had a guy hand me a flier for a bear event/club. If you don’t know what a “bear” is you should look it up. I thought I might mail it to Scott for old times sake. 🙂 I guess this is one of many times on this trip where the pictures I’ve seen won’t live up to the experience of actually being there. I just hope my travels and pictures will help you to decide where you would like to see and experience.
After the parade we went to visit with my aunt, cousin and her son (makes him second cousin I believe). Went to the Keg Mansion. Incredible building and each room has a slightly different decor. The food was plentiful and delicious. Just what I needed after standing on a hot Toronto street corner for four hours.
Gotta get on the road but here is a pic of Jack Layton in the parade. I’ll try to get more parade and Canada Day pics posted to a facebook album soon.
