Last weekend there was an even split between construction and event-related closures, but this weekend events are tipping the scale thanks to three festivals and two races.

The Taste of Little Italy is on this weekend, shutting down College St. from Shaw to Bathurst all weekend long, while the NXNE summer music festival is taking over Yonge-Dundas Square — shutting down most of the surrounding area.
