Did You See Us?
Music, happiness, dance and most of all friendly neighbours made the scene this past Saturday during our “Celebrate Winter 2016” event.
The York-Eglinton BIA brought some holiday spirit to our community through its “Celebrate Winter 2916” event. The afternoon consisted of 3 musical stations along Eglinton Avenue West between Marlee Avenue and Dufferin Street.
The first station was outside of Toronto Latino. A local hub for latin products, food and services. Here you had non-stop Christmas Carols in various languages for everyone’s enjoyment!
Walking down a little bit east was our second station. Just outside of Maria A. Shchuka Public Library. The Fairbank Village Artist Circle Choir directed by Isabel, a local community face painter. Isabel led a community choir of Christmas carols and encouraging people to sing along. Many people captured by the atmosphere decided to join and enjoy the snowy afternoon, including members of Toronto Police 13 Division.
A Latin guitarist joined the choir along with our own business members from Azure & Company Inc. A multitasking company that offers a variety of services (www.fhgiuhgbos.com). The ladies from Azure delighted us with a repertoire of Filipino Christmas Carols.
Further east, you would have found Snooky Tynes and his band. The band was located just outside of City Super Deals, our neighbourhood dollar store. They delighted us with fun music that made us move our bodies and warm up in the cold afternoon.
During the “Celebrate Winter 2016” event there were table games to enjoy. Free vouchers for local restaurants were handed out together with informative flyers. With the voucher, you could get a free “hot beverage/soup” at participating locations. We are happy to say that 100 vouchers were given to people passing by.
Finally, at the end of the day, we received an amazing surprise in our office. Kente Klaus came to wish us and some of our businesses Happy Holidays!
