Yonge & Dundas Square
Despite being born in 1795 (I’m a Pisces!), my charm and devil-may-care attitude make me a hit with the under-30 crowd – to this very day! So it should be no surprise I’ll be stopping by Toronto’s 7th Annual Youth Day – the festival celebrating the positive achievements of young people.
30,000 attendees will be on hand to take in over 100 live dance, music, and spoken-word performances. And lest they overlook the fashion show, vendors, interactive galleries, and delectable food and drink! It’s been deemed an official ‘Event of Municipal Significance’ by the City of Toronto (a declaration I wholeheartedly approve!).
In addition to soaking in the festivities, I shall be on hand to host my very own live talk show, titled Chill with Will. Expect it to be “epic,” as the youngsters a good century my junior would say. We’re talking a slick 19th-century talk show set, plus comedy, music, special CUPE 79 guests, and a healthy dose of rabble-rousing mayhem! Who says Craig Ferguson has the market cornered on high-energy Scotsman-hosted talk shows? Certainly not I!
Oh, and stick around to chat with yours truly: Toronto’s first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. I plan to mingle, pose for photographs, and engage in snappy banter, Rest assured, I shall be exactly as charming and whimsical as you’d imagine – if not more so!
