Celebration: First New Street in Regent Park!

There will be dancing in the streets in Toronto on June 12, 2010 from 1 to 4 p.m., when a celebration will be held to mark the unveiling of the first new street in the Regent Park Revitalization - Cole Street - with the support of Toronto Community Housing and The Daniels Corporation. Elected officials and dignitaries will be on hand to celebrate this milestone, which reconnects the neighbourhood with the rest of Downtown Toronto.

Everyone’s invited to this exciting street celebration, which will include a site-specific performance by a professional dance organization and Regent Park’s resident dance company, Coleman Lemieux; Compagnie featuring Canadian countertenor Daniel Taylor, and a musical performance by gospel/blues and jazz singer Jackie Richardson, Sterling Jarvis, members of the Nelson Mandela Public School Choir and The Tynes Family Singers and a spectacular, not-to-be-missed surprise finale. The gathering will begin at Parliament and Cole Streets (just north of Dundas).
