“Honest Ed” Mirvish passed away nearly a month ago, but Toronto is still in mourning. On Sunday, August 12, his family will be hosting a celebration of life outside of the Honest Ed’s Emporium (581 Bloor Street West) in lieu of Ed’s famous annual birthday party—he would have turned 93 on July 25.
With live music and entertainment scheduled from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., the city is closing down Bloor Street between Bathurst and Markham Streets in anticipation of a big crowd. Ed would have wanted you there.
