night of dread dufferin grove park

In Photos: Night of Dread in Dufferin Grove Park

The ninth annual "Night Of Dread" parade and festival on Saturday October 25th was a raucous and colourful community event with fun for young and old alike. Giant Papier Mache puppets representing "Big Dreads" (War; Environmental disaster, Modern Art and a few more) were paraded through the streets around Dufferin Grove Park before being mocked and banished for the year.

Kudos to Clay and Paper Theatre Company for another well-organized evening of friendly family fun.
