Toronto, Canada, has seen its fair share of interesting summer events, but the Beer & Ball Festival is one of the more niche ones out there. The first ever Beer & Ball Festival will be held this month at Handlebar, a bar located in Kesington Market. Bringing as much attention to this establishment as it does to the art of pinball, the event creates a fun experience with a healthy dose of competition thrown into the mix.
Accompanied by a mix of live acts and DJs, the tournament -- which will match to the music in some way -- will last for five days. It costs only $3 to compete and will include nightly prizes from local businesses including Thomas Lavers and Sanagan's Meat Locker.
