Westfest is going naked?

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, take a trip into Westboro and experience Westfest. This is a fun weekend for those who live in the area and for those who live afar. There is something for everyone and smiles abound throughout the day. The streets are closed off so shopkeepers can pull out their wares and fun events can take place. The whole neighbourhood is alive with fun and excitement.

There is entertainment galore the whole weekend. Friday is dedicated to showcasing Inuit performers, Saturday has a variety of Canadian performers (and my all time fave chick rocker Bif Naked), and Sunday has great local shows.

And don’t fret, there is plenty for those with gluten allergies. Fratelli’s has gluten-free pasta and The Works have burgers that are GF (just the meat patties without the bun – the veggie patties aren’t gf). Last year Juniper had a big BBQ out with some delicious smelling chicken. The Corner Bar and Grill has some staff that know about being GF and so can be helpful. Trio can also adjust your meal making it GF too. With all the great restaurants and cafes in Westboro, it would be hard to starve.

So grab your sunscreen and wallet in anticipation of those great deals you’re bound to find and have fun!
