Welcoming in the late, but much anticipated spring, federal Minister of Finance and our Toronto Centre MP Bill Morneau joined residents to celebrate the 47th annual Cabbagetown Forsythia Festival, on May 6th in Wellesley Park.

 
Together we welcomed a long-awaited spring with the Forsythia Parade, family-oriented activities, local food and drink, music and good company! The event started with the annual ribbon-cutting tradition, before participants marched along in the parade.

 
Also participating in the day’s activities were Toronto Mayor John Tory, City Councillor Lucy Troisi and former Mayor Barbara Hall (pictured above).

 
The festival gathered many friends and families to enjoy partaking in the numerous activities set up in Wellesley Park, including Toronto’s “un-official mascot,” the Mechanical Raccoon. Sustainability was a key theme — refillable water bottles and green bins are two examples of responsible actions that reduced the event’s footprint.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Forsythia Festival this year, especially to all the hard-working volunteers who made sure everything ran smoothly. Happy spring, looking forward to next year’s Forsythia festival!
