Peace Is Possible Parade

On Friday, July 24 from 11am to noon, some 200 children ages 6-12, performing artists and volunteers will jubilantly march west along the Danforth from Shopper’s World, then north on Dawes Road, finishing at Taylor Creek Park.

The paraders, many in colourful costumes, will carry banners and posters expressing messages of peace, while others will play musical instruments, chant or dance. The Peace is Possible Parade marks the culmination of three weeks of artistic workshops, involving children from day camps and community centres in and around the East York region. These workshops, facilitated by professional performing artists, help the children explore issues of social conflict in their own lives and around the world, through singing, dancing, acting, visuals, and storytelling.

And finally,

Hats off to our local BIA for its jazz series on Wednesday nights.  I’ve been the last two Wednesdays and it’s terrific.  There were lots of folks there yesterday on lawn chairs and picnic blankets.  The music is good.  The food is good and it’s a nice neighbourhood vibe.  If you haven’t been there already, check it out.
