This evening (Tuesday), the kings and queens of Kensington migrate a little bit south and west to bring us their third annual Streets Are For Picnics! event. With more than a little help from the TTC, the pedestrians and cyclists of Toronto will reclaim the stretch of Dundas at Ossington, colonizing it with games and music, picnic blankets and baskets. The festivities will then be capped off with a street screening of the movie that resulted when Frankenweenie‘s director, Phil Hartman’s writing partner, and Oingo Boingo’s frontman decided to remake an Italian neorealist classic: Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
The fun goes on, rain or shine, from 7:00-11:00 p.m.
