The Bentway Block Party: Be Part of Our Bent Parade

August 14, 2018 Arts & Culture

On August 25, The Bentway completes Phase 1 with the Opening of Strachan Gate and the Launch of our Fall Season with a massive all-day, all-ages block party complete with art installations, music, games, food and beverage, and more.

One of the highlights of the day is a parade of human bents with costumes designed by Toronto-based designer Rob Shostak, best known for his iconic series of Toronto landmark Halloween costumes. The costumes, rendered in bright Bentway yellow, take the form of the bents (the Gardiner Expressway support structures from which The Bentway gets its name).

Want the chance to be part of the parade? Send us a photo or video talking about what you love about The Bentway or what you’re looking forward to at The Bentway Block Party. Tag us with the hashtag #BentwayBlockParty or #BentParade for a chance to be chosen! Deadline: August 19.
