PHOTOS: Saturday’s Gould Street Party

Wine tasting, a beer garden, live music and giant Jenga: these were some of the things that welcomed visitors during Saturday’s Gould Street Party, which was part of Ryerson’s Alumni Weekend festivities. While the turnout wasn’t huge, those that showed up didn’t seem to mind the rain.

The turnout to this year’s Gould Street party was very low, likely due to the cold and rainy conditions, but those that did come out crowded into the beer garden set up at the Ryerson rink and checked out the wine tasting event at Oakham Café. (Brooks Harvey)

The Bug Push happens every March in honour of National Engineering Month. This year, it was used to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. (Brooks Harvey)

Ryerson aerospace engineering student, Ammar Jessa, showed off last year’s formula racing go-kart. The go-kart was made entirely by Ryerson students (engineering students and volunteers from other programs) and funded by Ryerson along with other private sponsors. This combustion go-kart, with a 600-cubic centimetre engine, was used in a collegiate-level competitive racing league, where engineers from across North America build go-karts and compete.

A Ryerson event is never complete without our beloved mascot, Eggy the Ram. Even though his costume was soggy from the rain, he continued to dance. (Brooks Harvey)
