I’ve rarely taken the time to explore the Toronto Islands. I have vague memories of Centre Island as a child, taking the ferry over, seeing the skyline, and riding on the swans and trains with my sister.
That all changed this month.The resurgence started with several weddings at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC). For three weekends in a row, we DJed memorable events for wonderful couples.
We are hoping to continue to build on the relationship with RCYC and hopefully have many more special summer nights together next season. For more info on the RCYC visit https://rcyc.ca/DINING-(1)/Weddings.aspx or contact Claudia at email@example.com
On a personal note, friends and I went to Ward’s Island last week for a beach day. We took the $7 return ferry, ate awesome burgers at the Islands Cafe, and swam in the south-facing water. We even got to see the newly unveiled “Jack Layton Ferry Terminal” sign, which also has special memories as I got the chance to interview him during my time as a reporter with CTV, but also had the esteemed pleasure of DJing his daughters’ wedding at the Capitol Theatre.
So whether you are looking for a place to get the guitar out, or possibly scout a quintessential Toronto venue for your upcoming wedding, enjoy a day at the island before summer comes to a close. Maybe I’ll see you there!
