Sony Diaries #1023: Kensington Market Winter Solstice Festival

Billed as a celebration of "the return to warmth and light in the heart of Kensington Market over the Winter Solstice", the parade features decorated revelers, hand-made lanterns, roving giant puppets, stilted dancers, assorted  musical entertainment, tented theatrical shadow play, fire breathers, and thousands of enthusiastic parade participants.
The parade moves like an organic mass, squeezed and hemmed in by the eclectic shops on Augusta, from Oxford Street down to Dundas Street. Lanterns are on sale for 15$ each, in support of the local arts scene.
Shot with a Sony A7III, Sigma 35F1.4, Sigma 50F1.4 (both alpha-mounts using an LA EA3 adaptor). Shot mostly at ISO12800.
