Shameless Civic Plug

The City of Toronto is having a wonderful Winter CityFest starting Friday January 28th and extending through the weekend of Feb 6th. Many events are downtown at New City Hall – Nathan Phillips Square. If you are in Toronto on business consider staying an extra day or two for the festivities. The picture below is from the Cavalcade of Lights show this past Christmas:
