Day 90 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Happy New Year 2009

There was lots going on in Toronto in terms of New Year’s celebrations, but we weren’t really up for the club scene, so we opted to go to Nathan Phillips Square to listen to music with the masses. Throngs of people waved red and white balloons, wore New Year’s hats and blew into noise-makers. Many Toronto PD were lined up on horseback, while others stood on patrol, clustered together on the lookout for scuffles.  Although there was a big-screen TV to showcase the performers on the stage, we couldn’t see anything as we were stuck waaaay in the back.  After the fireworks the crowds rapidly dispersed, probably due to the cold weather. We were pretty chilled by the end of the celebrations, but it was still a fun time. Happy New Year, everyone!

    Happy New Year! I am loving the Toronto pictures. Especially China Town. I remember taking some great pictures there a million years ago.
