On Sunday, Word on the Street was held in Queen's Park here in Toronto. If you're not familiar with it, it's a festival which showcases authors, publishers, poets, storytellers and various vendors selling literary goodness. In addition to this, there are workshops for the aspiring writer and a variety of performers for all ages.

My little person and I had a great time. It's a very child-friendly event (as it should be!) and there were many stations catering to the young (and the young at heart). There was even a stage for the TVO gang, nestled in the trees, with performances going on throughout the day. We brought a little picnic with us and refueled after a few hours. It was nice to sit back and watch the crowds make their way through the festival. I would love to see the festival make its way to Winnipeg one of these days... It's a wonderful celebration of the written word!

One of the highlights of the festival was meeting the lovely Kim of Kim's Suitcase fame (www.kimssuitcase.blogspot.com). I told her I enjoyed her blog and bought one of her cute little calendars!
