- This weekend was a bit on the windy side, and while that might have been a bit annoying for those of us with long hair or lots of bags to carry, one contingent was certainly glad: the group of Torontonians who got together at Woodbine Beach on Saturday for Windfest, Toronto’s annual kite festival.
