2018 Cabbagetown Forsythia Festival – Thank You!!!

Forsythia-FestivalForsythia Photo & article contributed by Shawna Pereira
With open arms and yellow frocks residents from Cabbagetown, Regent Park and St. Jamestown came together to welcome spring in style. The 47th Cabbagetown Forsythia Festival is an annual tradition put on by the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA). Free to attend, the festival is run 100% by neighbourhood volunteers and financially supported by sponsorship and donations by our local businesses.  This year, we welcomed new station sponsors to the Festival: Buds and Blossoms ran the glitter tattoo station, Blooming Planters, who made real flower crowns with participants and MWM Fish Co set up an oyster bar. We also (for a change) welcomed the “Un-official Mascot of Toronto”, a new attraction…. The Mechanical Raccoon. With an unconfirmed turn out of almost 1000 people, we say the Festival was a hit and are so thankful to all of our volunteers and sponsors who helped it all come together. If you didn’t make it out this year, be sure to make your calendars for Sunday, May 5th for the 48th Annual Cabbagetown Forsythia Festival
