In some previous years, there has been a Cuban street rumba at St. Clair and Vaughan. Many of the best Cuban musicans in town set up the tumbadoras… metales (horns), tres, bongos and a small amp or 2… on the street curb, and some of the finest moments of the year ensue. Whether that will happen this year, can’t say for sure… but it might be worth checking.
