With the Hallowe’en season fast approaching (and let’s be honest, there’s ALREADY candy in the stores), it’s time to have a fall cookout with your friends in VITT. Let’s gather at the cob fire pit in Dufferin Grove Park and tell ghost stories! 😀
The park staff request no drums or amplified music, but welcome acoustic instruments if anyone is so inclined.
Attendees are asked for a pay-what-you-can donation to help cover the cost of firewood, s’more ingredients, and the site permit.
Pack a thermos of something hot and yummy to share. Bring your travel mug, fire blanket & cuddle buddy, roasting stick & tofu dogs, and vegan marshmallows & chocolate chips for s’mores. The park will provide skewers and a trivet for cooking. It’s gon’ be fuuuuun! 😀
There are three fire pits in Dufferin Grove: main, cob, and rink. We are booked at cob, the small, southern pit.
An event called Night of Dread will be happening at the main fire pit in parallel with our event. Attendees are welcome to attend both. The parade leaves the park at about 5 or 6pm and returns about 7:30 or 8pm. Details here: http://clayandpapertheatre.org/2014/07/22/night-of-dread-2014/
There’s a rink house, skateboard park, and ice rink on the northwest corner of the park (at Dufferin St & Dufferin Park Ave). There’s a central walking path that extends south (from the corner of Gladstone Ave and Dufferin Park Ave) and north (from a small section of Gladstone Ave that extends north from Sylvan Ave). Just enter the park from any of these points and walk down the central path to the south end; the fire pit is just east of the path by the playground and pretty impossible to miss.
Hoping for a nice evening, but unless there is a torrential downpour such that the park cancels our reservation, this event WILL take place, regardless of how cold, wet, or nasty it is out. Fingers crossed! 🙂
DRESS WARMLY! (And stay warm by the fire!)
