On Jun 19-20, pedestrians enjoyed two car-free days on St. Clair Ave. This successful event was organized by the City of Toronto's Public Realm Section. The attached slides show what a great day it was for all involved and here are a couple of quotes from participants:
"This is fostering a real sense of community. We're running into neighbours that we wouldn't otherwise see."
"I live in the neighbourhood, and today I've found shops that I never knew existed."
The City of Toronto is celebrating the culture of walking with “St. Clair Feet on the Street”.

The event will feature sidewalk sales, displays and information tables from businesses along the street and restaurant/café patios operating on the sidewalks. The TTC heritage streetcar will offer FREE rides on Sunday.
