The 24th annual Kensington Market Winter Solstice filled Augusta Avenue with night-defying antics and entertainment, complete with a healthy dose of pyrotechnics. Giant puppets on stilts featuring performers from Shadowland Theatre and Clay & Paper Theatre got things started, followed by short musical performances by Spirit Wind & Eagle Women Singerz (Traditional First Nations Women's hand drummers) and Samba Squad led by Rick Lazar. Next, Richard Underhill from the Shuffle Demons climbed a tall ladder placed in the middle of the street while playing a Lukeman horn, until one of the other performers lit it on fire. The parade eventually made its way to Alexandra Park, where the fire jugglers stole the scene.
