Car Free Day Tomorrow!

For the first year ever, Car Free Day has moved from Yonge & Dundas Square to Queen's Park Crescent, which will be closed to vehicle traffic tomorrow, September 22nd, between 10 am and 2 pm from Wellesley north to Bloor. Instead of cars, you'll find street performers, activities, environmental NGO booths, yoga sessions, bike maintenance and repair workshops, food vendors, and a few eco-retail booths. The goal is to promote alternative transportation and reduction of everyday emissions in the GTA as part of what is actually an international, yearly event. This downtown location is partnered with U of T, which is holding its Environment Week festivities in the park on the same day.

What can you look forward to?

  • an art battle and charity auction
  • free yoga classes
  • giant board games in the park
  • mini golf, badminton, and other activities
  • cycling safety awareness, bike tune ups, and circuit training
  • dance classes, Really Really Free Market (trade used items for free), and food from local vendors

Hope to see you! I'll be organizing a game of Giant Scrabble.
