blogTO Photo Contest: "WinterCity 2007"

The WinterCity festival is "a city-wide celebration of Toronto's incomparable diversity of spirit bursting with culinary experiences, a hot blaze of free entertainment and a showcase of this city's vibrant arts scene". It's also sure to be photogenic.

Are you ready to put on those mittens (that make pressing the shutter button on your camera a little tricky) and get out and enjoy the many wonderful events and attractions the festival brings? There's so much going on! (PDF schedule of events)
