Peace, Clothes, and Burgers

2006_05_05clothingswap.jpg It will be an eventful weekend at Dufferin Grove Park where you’ll be able to promote peace, purge the old clothes, and binge on burgers! A Festival of Non-Violence will be held on Saturday from 1 until 6 in the afternoon. The day of non-violence is being celebrated worldwide to reject all forms of violent behaviour. The gathering is run by Toronto’s Humanist Movement and the event will feature music, speakers, poets, info tables, activities for children, eats, treats, and coffee.
If you’re getting sick of your wardrobe while at the peace-promoting event, you’ll be able to shed your layers and drop your unwanted clothes at the clothing swap at the Dufferin Grove Park’s rinkhouse (from 11am until 3pm). Clothing donators will receive between 1 and 10 swap tickets (you can donate more than 10 items of clothing but will receive no more than 10 tickets). The clothing swap and BBQ will take place on Sunday (from 11am until 3pm) where you’ll be able to exchange your ticket(s) for clothes while munching on food from the grill.
