Local derrieres are in for a treat as Leslieville is set to introduce new street benches that will add a splash of colour to the neighbourhood. The Leslieville bench, an iconic symbol of the area, is getting a unique makeover inspired by the neighbourhood's BIA logo.

Vibrant and hard to miss, the new benches, which have now been installed along Queen St. East, are sure to become a future neighbourhood landmark.

To celebrate the unveiling of the multi-colour benches as well as the unique character of the neighbourhood, Leslieville BIA is throwing an event on Saturday July 18 called #TOQS — The Other Queen Street.

Show your love for Toronto's east side by taking part in the day's festivities, which include the bench unveiling, themed food, art, design and fashion tours, an outdoor art challenge and Leslieville sidewalk sale.
