Toronto’s Bubble Bursts

The South African War Memorial in the middle of University Avenue was the unusual venue for this year’s Newmindspace Bubble Battle. The location was transformed from a stately, somewhat imposing monument, topped by a winged figure overlooking the intersection with Queen Street to a lively space, ringing with laughter and sparkling with bubbles.
The sight of this effervescent gathering sandwiched into the flow of traffic attracted many curious passersby, including a wedding party who posed for photos and were soon joined by revellers—one even clad in a ghost costume.
