Castles in the Sky parade

Colourful parade and dance-off turns heads in Toronto

Castles in the Sky's 2014 parade this past Saturday saw costumed marchers take to the streets not to turn complicated political issues into soccer-match-esque hysteria, but to add some colour and wonder to Toronto's streets via balloons, bubbles, masks, sparkles, and a possible unicorn spotting.

Newmindspace's annual parade gathered at Bloor and Spadina at 3pm and made its way from St. George Station to Union Station and up to Maple Leaf Square, where more bubbles were blown and a dance party confused onlookers before the parade continued to the Island. This year's throng seemed a little smaller than years previous, possibly owing to the sheer mass of events going on in the city, but the feeling of well-organized spontaneity (shh, why not) kept spirits high.
