Jarvis & King- A #TransitHubbing Encounter at Buskerfest

At the Buskerfest (@BuskerFestTO) street performance festival near the Jarvis & King Hub in Toronto, we had a spontaneous #TransitHubbing Encounter with a Latin-inspired band called DrumHand, a group of sugar-powered children, and a unicyclist horseman gone wild...

The Jarvis and King Hub, just a few blocks east of Yonge Street, is in one of the most beautiful parts of Toronto, featuring buildings and architecture steeped in the city's past. Walk one block south and you'll find yourself in the lively St. Lawrence Market District, the ideal place to wander aimlessly with a loved one on a Sunday afternoon. And if you were in the area on the weekend of August 26-28, you would have wandered right into a clown, a magician, and even a juggler or two at Toronto's Buskerfest. Enjoy!

To get to the Jarvis and King Hub, take the King Streetcar east from King or St. Andrew Station.

The St. Lawrence Market District is a food-lover's dream - but today, it's the home of Buskerfest

Piles of cotton candy, Latin-fuelled beats, and a chorus of crazy kids: a recipe for chaos!

Awe-inspiring alien insects on stilts descend upon a terrified crowd

Nothing caps a day at Buskerfest off like Coconut water!
