Kensington’s Annual Winter Solstice
7:00 PM – 1:00 AM
http://redpepperspectacle.wordpress.com/
The Kensington Market Winter Solstice parade is a tried-and-true tradition (now in its 24th year) that, quite literally, lights up the longest, darkest night of the year.  How, you ask? With the aid of a procession of lantern-holders, and a finale event that sees fire-throwers and the burning of an effigy.  At 7:00 PM gather at the corner of Oxford St. and Augusta Ave.  Then slowly make your way (wielding lanterns) to Alexandra Park, led by a marching band.  For the 2013 coverage of the Kensington Market Winter Solstice parade, click here.
