Thanks everyone for the comments! I've really enjoyed putting these entries together. If anyone has an suggestions or interests in certain parts of the city just let me know and I'll see if I can put together an interesting collage of pictures.

Speaking of that, the "islands" outside Toronto, looks very nice... Any pics?

A compilation of Toronto "faces" to compliment "places" would be a great collection given the demonstrated skill of the photogs you've assembled.

As a follow-up to the "islands" suggestion... a collection of Toronto's beaches/waterfront would be interesting... it's a fair assumption that many non-residents think that our waterfront ain't great (and we have to wait for the bloated bureaucracy known as WaterfronToronto to build something), .... when the opposite is actually true:

au natural might include the beaches/boardwalk, islands (south shore beach), Cherry beach and spit, Bluffer's Park, Sunnyside, Humber Bay Parks...

and few "built" elements like HtO, wave-decks, water's edge at Harbourfront, music garden... hell, more than 3 and a half decades later, Eb's Ontario Place pods & Imax geodesic dome still look striking out there in the lake.

Thanks everyone for the comments and suggestions. I'm going to post this entry on the exhibition grounds of Toronto as I started it much earlier. I'd love to do an entry on the waterfront and the islands and so they will most definitely appear in the future. I'll also continue showing the cultural side of the city and the wonderful people that make Toronto such a great place to live.

Thanks for everyone's input!

The Princess Gates were opened in 1927, by Edward, Price of Wales, to mark the country's 60th birthday. The statue on top is the "Goddess of Winged Victory" and in her hand is a maple leaf (a Canadian symbol). The gates contain 9 arches on either side to mark the 9 provinces that were part of confederation at the time.

Toronto's Exhibition Grounds is located bordering the waterfront to the west of the city's core. It is a 197-acre large area that hosts festivals, corporate events, concerts, parks, and much more.

CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) is a yearly held event that has been running for 129 years. It is one of the most popular events in North America with 1.3 million visitors attending last years (including myself!!). The event is held at Toronto's Exhibition Grounds (among the buildings pictured above).

Caribana is another event held at Toronto's Exhibition Grounds. It is a festival dedicated to Caribbean music and culture with 1.3 million attendee's at last year's parade (though it is a festival that occurs on many days).
