Did someone say Giant Piñata?

187785659_fd1232df81_m.jpgSo, late tomorrow afternoon when you wake up all hungover from Halloween partying in the apartments directly above beside and across from Torontoist’s (or perhaps as early as noon if you have small children or are that one guy who didn’t see the flyers) please try to remember that the weekend is not over yet.
Why? ‘Cause after tomorrow, Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington will be. (Over, that is.) That’s right. Not only are the clocks going back and the leaves falling off the trees, but it will soon start to get too cold for leisurely strolling. We don’t want to deter anyone from taking a vigorous constitutional walk in inclement weather, but if you like a relaxed community Sunday with improved air quality, willy-nilly chillin in the middle of the street, and perhaps a theme to tie the whole thing together so your world makes sense, tomorow is your last chance until next year.
Toromorrow’s excuse to throw a party is Halloween! Honoring our Ancestors. As usual, there will be no motor vehicles in the market from 12noon to 7pm (10pm on North Augusta). As for fun, we’re talking:

  • Punkin’ carving, of course
  • Dance demonstrations
  • giant board games
  • labyrinths
  • An installation: My Ancestors Were Warriors
  • The Kensington Rocks Festival, from 1 – 7pm
  • a giant piñata at 2
  • A costume parade at 5:30
  • Scary Storytelling from 3 – 5
  • possibly scarier Spoken Word at UpRising from 1 – 3
  • And a whole raging edifice of narrative with the ‘Exquisite Corps’ Community Stroy Building

You’re going to need to eat all your Halloween candy early just to get up enough energy to do it all.
