Toronto Mayor Ford will be hosting the Etobicoke portion of his annual Ford Fest.
In the past the BBQ was held in the backyard of the Ford Family home.
The number of those dropping by for the event had kept rising.
This year instead of being held in an Etobicoke backyard, Ford Fest Etobicoke will be held at Centennial Park.
When? This coming Friday Sept 20. The festivities starts around 6Pm.
It was cool of Mayor Ford to call Etobicoke residents with an invite.
There will be free food (BBQ burgers). A Midway for the kids. Music performances. A chance to meet Mayor Ford. Sounds like a fun evening.
