Yesterday marked the kick-off of Toronto’s Ribfest in Centennial Park in the west end. The event is the perfect way to celebrate the long weekend! It opened yesterday (the 27th), and will remain open until Canada Day, from 11a.m. to 11p.m.

Toronto Ribfest is an annual event and has something to offer for everyone. Needless to say, there will be food, and lots of it. Ribs, pulled pork, gourmet food trucks, lemonade, beer, you name it. There will be live entertainment, human Foosball, a Kidz Zone offering magic shows and face painting, rides and games, and many more. Don’t worry about missing the World Cup, because it’ll be displayed on giant screens from Saturday to Tuesday. Of course, the national holiday isn’t complete without fireworks. The festival will go out with a bang when the fireworks light up the sky at 10p.m. on Canada Day.
