Dennis Hanagan –
On June 4, bands played, dancers jived and families found front steps to rest on as they enjoyed the Eats & Beats Streetfest in the Riverside BIA district. The 10-block district stretches from the Don River to Jimmie Simpson Park. Kids got their faces painted, artists showed their works at Jimmie Simpson Park and all along Queen passersby tasted samples of restaurant menus. The street fest coincided with the 18th annual June 5 Riverdale Art Walk.
