Winter Draws to a Close, Spring beckons, the sap is running! Contributed by The Cabbagetown BIA

It’s been another long, cold winter, with the odd tease of balmy weather to come. Dire and traumatic events continue to unfold in Europe and the entire world sits on pins and needles as this escalates and intensifies. The Cabbagetown BIA is unequivocally in favour of the sovereignty of Ukraine and wholeheartedly opposes the Russian invasion. #cabbagetowncares

At the risk of presenting itself as unsympathetic, we press ahead with local marketing and promotion right here in Cabbagetown. The sap is running, and #MapleLicious is the theme de spring.

Our #MapleLicious photo booth was installed for a period of time at the Steak & Chops corner, but met with some challenging weather. It will reappear as part of our wrap-up event on Sunday, April 3rd, 3 – 6pm.. Bring your smiles and mug for the camera!  Maple Taffy, Beaver Tails, Live Music and more will bring #MapleLicious/22 to a close. Check our ad on page X for more details.Visit https://www.cabbagetownto.com/events for all the latest developments!

Original art on our #MapleLicious photo booth is the inspiration of mural artist Yasaman Mehrsa. Love her style? Keep your eyes on the east laneway wall of F’Amelia in the coming weeks. Yasaman’s artistic talents will evolve in this location in the form of a new Cabbagetown Wall Mural thanks to a City of Toronto Mural Grant and your BIA businesses.
