Where would you go to ride a bull, get lost in the corn and sample old-time country foods? Midtown Toronto, of course — at least on Oct. 13 when the Midtown Country Fair was launched.
The Midtown Yonge BIA hosted its first country fair in a parking lot near Yonge Street and Davisville Avenue — complete with a corn maze, mechanical bull riding, entertainment, games, contests and food.
The free event drew about 1,000 people from across Toronto to the midtown site.
“Every day in midtown it’s a hyped up urban life and its very city-oriented,” an organizer said. “We wanted to give those that cannot get out of the city a chance to have that experience.”
