Luminato Festival: 10 Days of Interactive Art & More

The Luminato Festival  is back! This 10 day celebration of the arts, food, dance, music and more gives you a chance to get involved and get interactive! Each day has something new. Here’s what I checked out at opening night.

Alas, Karaoke with an Orchestra was only around for the opening night, but let me tell you- it was exhilarating just to watch the rehearsal. I hope they do this again!

Hunter, Gatherer, Purveyor is a very cool popsicle cart on wheels with some of the most unique pops you’ll ever eat. This duo visited Toronto neighborhoods with a reputation, and created popsicles with what the found there. The chosen neighborhoods were Rosedale, Malvern and Mount Dennis. I had Malvern, and it was made from goat’s beard and yarrow. Definitely one of the most unusual popsicles I had ever had! Find them at the Pan American Food Festival on June 21 and at the Festival’s closing night, June 28.

An Imaginary Rose Garden is combination of installation, and digital exhibition. It’s very pretty, and a bit romantic! Perfect place to steal a kiss?

The Festival Hub is the heartbeat of the festival at David Pecaut Square. The best part? Parts + Labour will be serving up fresh eats all week long.
