City-wide festival gets neighbourly
There will even be a festival inside a festival — The Old East Village Community Association is hosting their annual Block Party on Saturday.
Meg Pirie, the community association’s president, said City of Neighbourhoods coincided with their annual party, which will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m on a section of Dufferin Avenue closed to traffic between Ontario and English streets.
“It is a space for people to come together, and to meet and learn about their community,” she said. “There will be live music on six different porches. Old East is known for its porches.”
