Downtown Yonge loves Canada!

Downtown Yonge BIA in partnership with the Community Folk Art Council of Toronto will put together the first Living Flag in Toronto July 2015! This is to celebrate Canada Day and the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag. We invite the public on July 1st to be part of the history-in-the-making formation of the Canadian Living Flag at Yonge and Dundas Square. Red and White shirts will be distributed on-site starting at 2pm. Come early though. While you wait for the formation, enjoy the live performances on stage representing cultures from around the globe. It’s a family event!
