Clay and Paper Theatre and the Night of Dread

People dressed in black, white and dreadful for the 18th annual masquerade and parade which started in Dufferin Grove Park on Saturday, October 28, 2017. All manner of scary and delightful characters roamed the grounds of the park getting ready for the family-friendly community event which provides a warmup for kids to the upcoming Halloween candy fest. The event is free with requests for donations from the volunteers.

After gathering together in the park starting at 4pm, the parade heads out onto the streets of Toronto from 6 to 7 pm, then later there is more events until 9 pm. You can buy some masks on site, volunteer to wear masks and puppets or just watch the towering puppets, ghostly figures and wispy white umbrella people.

"Torontonians are invited to call on, mock and banish their private and collective fears through parade and pageantry, music and masquerade, dance and a devilishly good party." The event happens in the park just across from the Dufferin Mall. The parade starts from the Gladstone Avenue entrance to the park and circles clockwise along Bloor Street West, Concorde Avenue, College Street and Havelock Street back into the park.
