Time travel to the ’20s for two days in mid­town

North Toronto Post - - Life -

When it’s sum­mer in Toronto, it’s fun to turn back time. Whether you’re at the Queen’s Plate or Polo for Heart, Toron­to­ni­ans love to gussy up and get out there. This month ush­ers in one of our city’s favourite time-trav­el­ling events, the Spad­ina Mu­seum’s an­nual Gatsby gar­den party. About 1,600 guests will dress up in some 1920s garb and traipse the grounds of a his­toric manor around the cor­ner from Casa Loma. The party is a two-day event with a dance floor and live mu­sic from the Win­ter­garten Or­ches­tra, Ben Har­vey and his Or­na­men­tals and gramo­phone ex­pert Keith Wright. For those not in a danc­ing mood, there will be cro­quet, a spe­cial Canada 150 photo booth, and for an ex­tra $5 you can get a guided tour of the mu­seum.

This an­nual retro party goes down at 285 Spad­ina Rd. on June 24 and 25.
