Summer is probably our favourite season in the city. Not only do we see less rain (more or less), but we get to enjoy our beaches, get out to nature, and experience free festivals. And there is one more to add to the list: Shakespeare in the Park.

Because we love free outdoor experiences like the Movies in the Park, Shakespeare in the Park is a performance not to miss this summer.
