About the 2020 walk
Step back in time with us, to when our city was more 'Muddy Little York' than 'Toronto the Good' (as we're known today). During this 2-hour walking tour we'll explore how the city of Toronto has transitioned from the kind of place you would never want to bring your family, to the kind of place you'd love to have a family. Along the way we'll discuss how fire fundamentally changed the landscape of the downtown core, stand above an unmarked mass grave for Cholera victims hiding in the middle of a beautiful park, explore the death and re-birth of Yonge Street (from glitz and glamour to seedy underbelly and back again), and talk about the time that the circus came to town - with clowns beating up fire fighters, and the fire brigade burning down the circus.
The tour will be 2-hours long, beginning and ending at the lobby of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel.
