Remember the great blackout of 2003 â that slightly scary but magical time when people came together, made friends and had a great time without a single light on? Earth Hour is a chance to relive that glory, while also saving energy and showing your love for planet Earth.
On Saturday March 25 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. people and businesses worldwide are encouraged to shut off all non-essential lighting. It's a great chance to look up and see the stars or just hang in candlelight.
Here's how to celebrate Earth Hour 2017 in Toronto.
Parkdale and Roncesvalles villages are having candlelight walks in support of climate action, one west along Queen St. and one south down Roncesvalles Ave., meeting at the intersection of King, Queen, and Roncesvalles.
The University of Toronto's AstroTours is celebrating with free planetarium shows, telescope viewing, interactive demonstrations and a talk with Professor Suresh Sivanandam. It's a great way to star gaze from the heart of the city.
