This is a BIG weekend for our family. I’m proud to say my hubby will be participating (yes, in a race car) in the Honda Indy Toronto! Since he’s begun racing, track weekends turn out to be our summer “vacations” as we typically visit Ottawa, Montreal, Trois Riviere, Mont Tremblant racetracks to mention a few. But when we found out he was in the Toronto Indy, well, that added a whole other level to excitement to the racing year. If you are interested in attending, Friday is FREE family day. Our paddock area will be baby friendly with drinks, shade, stroller parking and a quiet place for our little guy to sleep.
Of course there are plenty of other festivals and fun events for you and your family in and around Toronto this weekend. And Mother Nature is being kind enough to grace us with beautiful blue skies and warm sun. So get out and enjoy yourselves, make the most of this beautiful season and city.
Near and dear to our hearts is the 2014 Honda Indy Toronto! It features a full length IndyCar race on both Saturday July 19th and Sunday July 20th. Each race will be an equal length, championship points race. Baby S’s Daddy will be competing in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge is a unique series featuring semi-professional drivers in one of the largest single-make series in North America, racing exclusively the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. The series has grown from a field of seven cars to a challenging field of over 20 cars, and is noted for its competitive gentleman atmosphere.
Junior Carnival is an annual parade that gives children the opportunity to celebrate Caribbean culture and share it with their community. Young masqueraders dance through the streets in their brightly coloured costumes. This parade, similar to the Carnival is made up of a series of band leaders displaying costumes in competition. The band sections are made up of only children who are beginning to participate in Toronto Caribbean Carnival traditions.
