Today, July 30, 2003. Toronto entered the record books by hosting the largest single day outdoor concert event ever in North America. Right now over 500 000 people are taking in a once in a lifetime concert event. Its amazing. I couldn't go, but...well, I'll let the pictures do the talking.
Sam Roberts got the show going
Hopefully tomorrow some pictures from helicopters will show us exactly what it was like from up above. On TV, half a millions people look like a giant ant colony.

All for $21 dollars and all to re-introduce the world to the best city in the world Toronto!!. Bad press from SARS drove people away and stained the reputation of this amazing city of ours. It was also cool to see members of government in front of giant BBQ cookin up Western Canadian beef. One cow shows a trace of mad cow disease and the world, esp the US blacklists us. This event was a slam in your face "take that"!!! to the rest of the world and to show how cool T.O. can be.
Whadda cool day, wish I could have been a part of it.
