The Third Annual BuskerBall was held in St. Lawrence Market last night and as a proud sponsor of this year's Scotiabank BuskerFest, the Cityzen crew were in attendance to get a sneak peek of what's in store over the next four days.
Some of the best street performers in the world were joined by more than 600 guests with the common goal of raising money for Epilepsy Toronto.
There was plenty of action over the course of the evening, with various performers entertaining the crowd amidst a live auction presided over by Zack Werner (including a special appearance by the Toronto Maple Leaf's Colby Armstrong), with MC Tom Hayes of CTV guiding us through the evening's events.
Here's what you can expect on the St. Lawrence Market streets this weekend:
