Bridge the Gap during Nuit Blanche
Follow the searchlights and take a stroll across the Queen/Dufferin Bridge where you'll be lead straight into a flurry of excitement happening right in the middle of Parkdale. Taking place on Saturday October 4, 2008 - the third annual Nuit Blanche is setting up shop all across the city of Toronto and the Parkdale Village BIA is pleased to announce their initiatives as part of Zone C.
With twenty rousing installations exploring the different realms of modern art including fashion, dancing, music, metalsmithing, film and more. This all-night arts festival and the installations within Parkdale are sure to tickle just about anyone's fancy.
Hop aboard the historic TTC streetcar at King and Shaw Street where you'll be looped around the majestic that is Parkdale. Be greeted by a model on the streetcar strutting the latest fashions from the finalists at the Art of Fashion installation (taking place in the Parkdale Library Parking Lot). Hop off at Close Avenue to take part in the Community Art Wall where everyone will be asked to create their own work of art. With paints and pastels - the creativity will be endless. Stop by at the Rhino Bar & Grill to grab some food and drink, but while you're waiting, you can watch one of the short films playing in their Independent Animation Film Festival. If film is not your thing - check out the Parkdale Drink. The Baro Dununba African Drum Group will be performing and sharing their knowledge of the tribal rhythm instruments and music.
Then afterwards, take part in the Play Day of the Dead parade happening in the Milky Way alleyway, closest to Gwynne Avenue.
