First ever Tamil street festival in Toronto this weekend

Toronto's first ever Tamil Festival is happening this weekend in Morningside Heights. Organized by the Canadian Tamil Congress, the event will showcase live music and dance performances, a mobile museum detailing Tamil Canadian history and of course, plenty of food.

Some of the food vendors expected to attend include Hopper Hut, Lingan Cream House and Yarl Dosa Corner.

More than 300,000 Tamil Canadians reside in the GTA and this inaugural street fest will unfold over August 29 and 30. It's all happening on Morningside between Finch and Nielson Road and more than 20 food vendors are lined up to serve crowds over the two days celebration.
