TORONTO, Ont. – The 100th Grey Cup Festival is in full swing in Toronto leading up to the championship game at the Rogers Centre.
Since September, the cup has been traveling across the country on a CFL train to celebrate its centennial.
The cup arrived at City Hall Friday morning and was on display at Exhibition Station on Saturday before making a stop at Yonge-Dundas Square. People can then take pictures with the cup at Nathan Phillips Square during the Cavalcade of Lights.
A street festival with ribs, a beer garden, pickup football and live music occurred on Front Street, from Simcoe to John and north to Wellington.
One of the events was the Mud Bowl, in which music reporter Rudy Blair took part. You can view the photos in the photo gallery to the left.

For $20, you can zip-line across City Hall and there is also an obstacle course run by the Canadian Armed Forces.
The skating rink in Nathan Phillips Square has also been transformed into a football field to help put people in the mood for the 100th Grey Cup.
Meantime, Mayor Rob Ford is throwing his support behind the Argos – by making a friendly wager with the Mayor of Calgary.
The losing mayor will donate his weight in food to the winning city’s food bank. The losing mayor will also agree to wear the winning jersey to a city council meeting.
The Toronto Argonauts have a shot at hoisting the trophy on Nov. 25.
