Taste Lawrence Avenue

Tasting Lawrence Avenue

The annual Taste of Lawrence Festival kicks off tonight. Last year 125,000 people descended on the pocket of Scarborough known as Wexford Heights. On offer is lots of food, representing the wonderfully diverse local restaurants. There's also live music, marching bands, a midway and a collection of street performers. It all takes place on the stretch of Lawrence Avenue between Warden Avenue and Crockford Boulevard.

Like many festivals, but especially this one, The Taste of Lawrence aims to introduce its neighbourhood to those who might be experiencing it for the first time. For all the Lawrence Avenue virgins among us, here's some spots not to be missed.
