For our Ontario and Northern New York fans, you have an opportunity to enjoy a June afternoon with NEXUS at Toronto’s lifestyle centre known as Shops At Don Mills. Part of the Shops’ famed festival weekend, NEXUS will perform on Saturday June 26th at 3:30 pm at the Festival in the Square on the Main Stage. Admission is FREE and the festival has something for all ages.
Shops at Don Mills features wonderful shops and restaurants on tree-lined streets in an open-air setting surrounding a green Town Square. And it is in the Square that you will find NEXUS from 3:30 until 5:00. It is easy to come and go. You can stroll the Shops and still hear the music from the Main Stage, which starts with jazz from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00, then NEXUS from 3:30 to 5:00, and a big band in the evening followed by Fireworks! So make a day of it, bring the whole family because there will also be street entertainers and kids activities: face painting, and a Scavenger Hunt from 1:00 ’til 4:00. (Pick up your clue sheet at the Scavenger Hunt tent located on Aggie Hogg Gardens). At 1:00 and 5:00 there is a Birds of Prey Educational Demonstration & Show, also in the Aggie Hogg Gardens. (I have attended one of these, and it’s really interesting and fun. The day I attended I met a Peregrine Falcon and Red Tailed Hawk, up close and personal. You might meet a Great Horned Owl or even a Bald Eagle!)
Hope to see you there!
