Families love the Tattoo
Families love the Tattoo because of the high-energy shows and because of its association with Expo Quebec, Quebec's version of the state fair, which is set up every year immediately next to the Pepsi Colosseum in downtown Toronto. Families can enter the Expo for free on the day of the Tattoo with their free admission tickets. Until the show starts, enjoy the rides, animals, and cultural exhibitions. They'll keep you busy all day.
Eddie Festival brings people together for music, memories, and fun.
A special occasion serves to honor a much-loved musician. Eddie Lakata was well-known, and everyone who knew him had a story to tell. It was Phil Schuyler's ukelele-playing late-night shows with Lakata in 1994, while the rest of the band was dismantling the gear, when he would get behind the bar and play AC/DC songs that he remembers most fondly. Schuyler recently stated that it was a huge hit with the audience.
Something about him
It was perhaps the most unique person I've ever met," Schuyler said. There was something about him that attracted people to him. He treated everyone as if they were his best friends, regardless of how long they had known him. In 2013, a car struck and murdered Lakata as he rode his bicycle to his tent on Caroga Lake. He was only 22 years old. He had reached the age of 55.
