Massive crowds gather at Hanlan's Point for beach party in Toronto
Toronto's beaches were predictably busy this past weekend as intense heat and humidity descended upon the city and residents looked to cool off, but one beach in particular saw massive crowds dancing and partying like it was pre-COVID.

"Not good... too crowded," commented one Toronto resident on TikTok. "Going to be lockdown again soon."
"And I can't get a haircut?" wrote another.
"Welcome to wave 4 you selfish assholes," wrote another resident on Twitter.
As Ontario is currently in Step 1 of the province's Roadmap to Reopening, outdoor gatherings are currently only permitted with a maximum of 10 people.
Physical distancing is also expected to be maintained during all gatherings, including at beaches throughout the province.
While the party coincided with the final weekend of Pride month and Hanlan's Point is known for being a hub for the city's LGBTQ2S+ community, it remains unconfirmed whether the party was a Pride celebration or simply a weekend beach party like those that have taken place at Woodbine Beach in the past.
