On this the 20th anniversary of the amazing street festival, the threat of rain kept crowds down initially but by 9 p.m. Lakeshore Blvd. was packed with people taking advantage of the open-air stages and free concerts that are the hallmark of this jazz festival.
Rain is called for but forecasts are more optimistic about scattered rain where before they were calling for heavy downpours and violent thunderstorms which did hit Toronto today causing some flooding damage.
The Oakville Jazz Festival features on-the-street restaurant food and lots to do and hear.
In the photos the BIA organizers kicked off the 20th anniversary festival. Pretty girls and great dancers are part of the Oakville festival. Peter Appleyard was the Friday night headliner and where else but the Oakviile Jazz Festival does the music come to you when you’re just sitting on the street?
