What's up this weekend?

Hi, all. My 16 year old nephew is coming in for the weekend? Any cool stuff happening? I think he'd like to see a slice of life and some cool neighbourhoods (e.g., Kensington). He's been here to see Jays and Leafs games, but never really to explore the city. Anyone know of any street festivals or anything wacky and weird going on?

Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks!

This weekend seems to be the pause before the storm. Next week is both Buskerfest & Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington. There's a big South Asian festival currently going on at Harbourfront.

Even though it's not car-free, we'd still recommend Saturday afternoon in Kensignton. Grab lunch at Big Fat Burrito, check out the longboard & vintage shops. Bikes on Wheels, a temple of hip on Augusta is good for some serious window shopping if he's into biking. Head down Spadina, then west on Queen out past Bellwoods Park where the Queen West MusicFest is on (Saturday only)

Maybe over to the islands on Sunday?

Have fun!
