High Park Annual Moth Night

Thursday at 8:15pm, discover the “butterflies of the night” at the annual High Park Moth Night. Come explore moth habitat and spread moth broth on tree trunks before members of the Toronto Entomologists Association set up special lights to help us identify moths. Please bring your flashlights and insect collection containers. $2-$5 Fee.

The Lego Movie at Centennial Park

Friday night, come see a free screening of The Lego movie in Centennial Park. It’s all part of Park People’s Moonlight Movies screenings. This screening will be co-presented by Friends of Centennial Park. The Pre-show activities start at 7:00. Movie starts just after sundown, approximately 9:00pm.

Versa at Sherbourne Common

Imagine, music created on a bass guitar rendered visible as low-frequency sound traveling through water. Cool right? On Friday check out the physical patterns produced through the interaction of sound waves and water projected onto the walls of Sherbourne Common’s zinc-clad pavilion. Guests are invited to sprawl out on the park’s spacious lawn and take in a visual and auditory treat.

Earl Bales Park Multicultural Festival

On Sunday, head over to Earl Bales Parks’ Amphitheatre to enjoy music, theatre, food and crafts representing the many multicultural groups that call Earl Bales their park. The fun starts at 5:30, and at 6:30 enjoy the unveiling of a mural that was coordinated by the good people of Park People. This is a free, family friendly event.

Cavalcade of Marvels at Panorama Park

On Sunday, head to Panorama Park for The Cavalcade of Marvels, a theatrical tour-de-force, combining carny music, street magic, puppetry, showmanship and cheeky chicanery, resulting in an old time carnival show. Based on traditional acts that have entertained audiences at outdoor fairs, town squares and travelling sideshows for untold centuries, Itinerant Showman, and charming huckster, Buster Canfield combines forces with the old time musical stylings of The World Renowned, Webb & Daisy Waters, to create a theatrical outdoor extravaganza that harkens back to the street fairs and carnivals of the 1920s and 30s.
