Toronto gets a weekend-long pants free festival

If you see a horde of pantless people in Toronto this weekend, don't be alarmed. They're likely celebrating the 15th annual No Pants Subway Ride that'll go down this Sunday, January 10.

And, our local No Pants Society is upping the ante for 2016 by hosting its first ever weekend-long No Pants Festival because who even likes wearing pants anyways?

As the folks behind the No Pants Society say, "break out of leg jail," and head to the Dundas West area for events such as the nostalgia-inducing Netflix and No Pants slumber party, the No Pants Art Show at Hashtag Gallery, the Superhero Dance Party at Studio Bar and the No Pants body positivity and sexuality workshop. Everything's happening at either Hashtag Gallery or Studio Bar.

You can participate in the full roster of activities for $15; individual tickets are also available.

The New York City-based group Improv Everywhere started the No Pants Subway ride back in 2002. Since then, cities around the world have embraced this annual au naturel tradition.
