Night of Dread 2013

30 ghoulish highlights from the Night of Dread Festival

The annual Night of Dread Festival at Dufferin Grove Park offered a lot of Torontonians the chance to see their fears incinerated this weekend — literally. The black and white costumes and colossal masks were out in full force for Clay & Paper Theatre's 14th annual effigy burning / funereal procession, and fears, written on makeshift signs, from "the dark" and "kidnapping" to "line ups" and "Scientology" were set ablaze. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was also in attendance... sort of.

Here are 30 moments from this year's most cathartic Halloween parade.
