Kensington Market was on fire last night.

The 27th Annual Kensington Market Winter Solstice celebrations took place in the evening, marking the darkest night of the year and to celebrate the return of the sun.

The celebration drew a massive crowd, especially for a cold cold night. The parade, presented by the Red Pepper Spectacle Arts, included lanterns, sculpture, and puppeteering. And of course, there was a lot of fire.

Check out some of the incredible displays below.
