The annual Ward’s Island Fire Parade takes place this Friday July 30.
Assembly and pre-parade at 8.30pm at the Ward’s Island clubhouse (straight ahead from the Ward’s dock).
Parade sets off at 8.45pm
Cross the Water. Breathe the cool Island Air. Walk the earth. Feel the fire. Experience the unbroken circle.
Music, Lanterns, Stiltdancers, Hoola-Hoopers and Fire.
Feel free to bring instruments, candle-lit lanterns, your dancing selves and your friends and families.
Shadowland is running workshops each day 10am to 6pm, making costumes, shadow images and fire sculpture. A’Rythmics band practices are Wednesday and Thursday at 7.30pm.
Boats leave the city at 6.15, 7, 7.45 and 8.30. The Ward’s Island café (wonderfully resurrected by new owners) is right by the clubhouse and the Rectory café by the Algonquin Bridge, so come over early for dinner and then join us to celebrate the Dark and the Light.
