Locals know that film festival time means one giant Yorkville fan cluster. Legions of hopefuls line the streets outside the Four Seasons Hotel to catch a glimpse of their favourite celebrity at all hours, with dangling cameras and high expectations.
Often, anyone with sunglasses who looks like they could possibly be famous is enough to invoke a Greek chorus of melodic shriekery. If this sounds like your idea of heaven, take the TTC to Bay station.
Spend the afternoon patrolling the cobbled streets and taking in the glitzy scene. Soak in the electrified energy you will only find in the city come early September.
