Posted In: News Date:Aug 10th, 2018

More than a million and a half people are expected to attend a three-day festival celebrating the flavours of Greektown, where just weeks ago a deadly mass shooting unfolded that claimed two young lives.

Friday's opening ceremony of Toronto's annual Taste of the Danforth festival will recognise the heroic efforts of first responders and private citizens who came to the aid of 15 shooting victims, including 18-year-old Reese Fallon and 10-year-old Julianna Kozis.
