If any of you are in my “neighbourhood” today, and looking for something fun to do, swing by the Atomic Lollipop convention at 6 Garamond Court, Toronto, Ontario; the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre and with additional programming at the Toronto Don Valley Hotel.

Here’s the event link:

It’s on from August 2nd to the 4th and all details are on the site and promises to be an artistic and entertaining weekend!
