Yonge Street


The Canada Day in 2018 will be one to remember by the scorching heat wave. We have attended to watch like every other year, but it was exceptionally hot and humid. It didn’t seem like there were many people around at first if one would look around, especially at the West side of the Yonge …

Our favourite photo moment of the day during the annual Canada Day parade in Aurora on Yonge Street.

On this day, four years ago on April 11th, 2014 firefighters battled a devastating fire of the Aurora United Church that was located at the corner of Yonge and Tyler Street downtown Aurora. It was an emotional day for the people of Aurora. On this day I was out of town and I only saw …

When we reached St. John’s Sideroad all that snow excitement disappeared in a …

I had been eyeing to visit St. Andrew’s College (SAC) (Town of Aurora, Ontario, Canada) for a long time now. I was just curious to see this hidden facility that I had driven by so many times on Yonge Street in Aurora. The opportunity came during the Doors Open Aurora event last Saturday (August 15th, 2015). …

Another great Canada Day Parade in the Town of Aurora, Ontario. It is always a wishful thinking that after that last parade float there will be one more. But, there are always fireworks later on. “I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to participate in that work as a representative of my …
