Winter Solstice Toronto

This is what the Winter Solstice parade looked like in Toronto this year

Toronto got lit this past weekend as it welcomed the longest night of the year, the winter solstice.

The annual gathering in Kensington Market took place on Saturday night and the crowds got to take in the spectacle of it all.

As always the event that takes over Kensington Market included giant puppets.

Even a Doug Ford inspired one was spotted.

An epic parade that filled the streets.

Stellar costumes at every turn.

And lots and lots of fire.

If you didn't make it out this year don't fret it will be back for another wild night in 2020.
