TORONTO, May 6, 2005-We’re having a BIG party, and everyone is invited! On Sunday June 26 (noon to 6 p.m.) join us at Harboufront Centre for our 30th anniversary Boardwalk Bash! We have created the ‘must-do’ family fun event of the summer season-three great reasons to celebrate by the lake! ONE - check out our brand spanking new waterfront, now featuring a boardwalk and two finger piers for the tour boats. TWO - the launch of Harbourfront Centre’s Summer Festival 2005 Series - an 11-week free-for-all feast for all the senses. THREE - the last blast of our 30th Anniversary year-long celebrations - a toast to you for 30 great years on Toronto’s South Shore.

This afternoon will have it all! A Parade. Free concerts. Boat Tours. Heaps o’ Food. Kids Activities. And ALOUD, our new festival for young readers. PLUS Canada's Celtic music superstar Natalie MacMaster and Pan-Canadian allstars African Guitar Summit at the CIBC Stage!
