A street festival is coming to the city this Sunday, just in time for the last stretch of warm weather. The event, called ActiveArtsTO, will take up 5 km of Lakeshore Blvd, which will become one giant sidewalk for the day.

The free event will have all kinds of fun things to do, including pop-up art, dance demos, an 80s roller skate party, lion dancing performances, basketball games, and so much more.

You’ll get to dance the day away to the sounds of DJ Dijon while you hit up some yoga, spin, and jump rope classes. If you’re feeling even more adventurous, you can hit up a Kung Fu workshop.
