Department of Streets and Recreation

When searching for a suitable title for the sequel to last year’s massive street parade/subway party Flight of Fancy, we needed only to consult a thesaurus. Not only a 2000-era epic trance track by Ian Van Dahl, Castles in the Sky are also seemingly impossible tasks. Some people call them “pipe dreams.” We call it the next Newmindspace event this Saturday.
While the details of the route are secret for now, we can tell you that this party will begin in one place and end in another, and part of getting there involves the subway. There will be marching bands, soundsystems on trucks, stilt walkers, fire dancers, and just about anything else you can imagine people bringing given the simple instruction: “dress wild.”
The fun begins at the corner of Bloor Street West & Spadina Avenue at 7:07 p.m. this Saturday, July 7, and moves shortly thereafter. Dress wild and bring subway fare. Be sure to check out the Facebook event as well!
