NXNE Rocks the Square

The zombie rabbit, or more likely the drunken rabbit, celebrates another year of the Toronto NXNE Music Festival and there are days of fun scheduled in Yonge-Dundas Square. The sponsors and stage are being setup right now and there is even a beer garden at the Square. I thought I saw a relatively sober rabbit there, without crosses for eyes but if you see him later he will probably be tanked and the eyes will be crossed then.

Monster Energy Drinks is on site and for a very small donation you can pick up a drink or a water bottle. 9KG presents the Party Naked Contest (go to facebook and enter to win and I got a picture with a deer guy and a rep for the company. Are you ready to go faster? I can’t hear you! Sorry, that’s for the CNE. Are you ready to rock Toronto?
