Our 6th annual Music in St. James Park begins this summer on June 1st with a fun, interactive concert.  First, fill your belly with delicious food from the evening’s sponsor, The St. Lawrence Market, at their BBQ in the Park from 5-7 p.m.  Then work off some of those carbs by taking a turn and riding one of the special bicycles from Tune Your Ride that will power the speakers for the concert by The Lemon Bucket Orkestra from 7-9 p.m.  Ride for one song or more, if you can.  It’s all in good fun and part of what will surely be a memorable evening in the park.    

Our historic artisans and re-enactors are back in Old Town Toronto this summer from June-August.  You could have a chance at winning one of 3 $25 gift certificates to the St. Lawrence Market by posting a photo of you with our re-enactors or artisan or outside one of our landmark historic buildings and adding #OldTownToronto.  We’ll pick one winner each month so don’t miss out.

There is a hidden tunnel under Wellington Street between the Flatiron Building and the former Bank of Toronto across the street. The tunnel is still there, however bricked up at either end. It was a way for George Gooderham the bank president to get from his bank to his office in the Flatiron Building without having to go outside. Another reason for the tunnel was to move money back and forth in relative safety.
