Toronto to host snowboard rail jam and block party

A snowboard rail jam and block party is set to liven things up at Church and Shuter this spring, just as many of us will be thinking that we can finally retire our winter sports activities for another year. Sure, the timing might seem a bit curious, but I can assure you that the whole street party element will be made much more palatable by the late March weather.

Toronto snowboard shops will battle it out on the rail with other Ontario stores, while music will be supplied by Thugli and Rich Kidd. No word on the food element yet (update: we're told that food trucks will be on site), but given the sponsor, I suspect there will be plenty of beer to go around. Alas, that means the under 19 crowd is out of luck, but if you're looking for a way to say goodbye to winter once and for all, this might be the way to do it.
