Earth Hour is Saturday March 19 starting at 8:30 p.m. From candlelight walks to acoustic shows, there are plenty of ways those of us in Toronto can participate.

Here are a few ways to celebrate Earth Hour in Toronto this year.

Lights Out with Mill St. Brewery
At 8:30 p.m. Mill Street Brewery will be hosting "Lights Out with Mill Street" -- a ton of parties in celebration of Earth Hour across the city.

Several neighbourhoods around the city are inviting anyone and everyone out to join in on short treks in celebration of Mother Earth. Need some guidence? Monarch Park and Roncesvalles are both starting points (but I'm sure you can track down several more).
