If It's Solstice Then It Must Be Time for the Kensington Festival of Lights

Many years ago i was asked to join an unusual choir - a chorus of hags, you could say. As many times as i had marched along the route of the annual solstice celebration that is the Kensington Festival of Lights, never had i had so much fun. It is one of the great clowning experiences of my life. Well, once again i am joining La Befanas, the merry, raucous, cacophonous (very occasionally melodious) and always hilarious, group of solstice hags singing their love songs to the sun. This year i will be joined by my wife, J'net, as i continue to introduce her to the wonders of Toronto. This video is of the festival in 2005 with a wonderful section of La Befanas. If you've never attended the Festival of Lights, come on down this Friday night. It's unforgettable.
