Wishes in the Wind is a soulful parade that captures the struggles and resilience of children. Carrying rocks emblazoned with words of worry and waving flags with declarations of hope, young people offer us a glimpse into their hearts as they wish their way through this challenging time. Join us for this two-part experience where kids will be engaged in a workshop to make their flags and rocks and then parade around the Harbourfront Centre campus.
