Turn out the lights, un-plug the fridge and get your darkness on darlings, because tomorrow is Earth Hour 2014, a time to reflect about the environment, and have some fun in the dark. (Which, if you’re a Bunch-reader most likely means G-rated fun in the dark, but what have you.)

Kids are usually huge fans of Earth Hour – what could be better than ‘camping’ at home by candlelight (with safety in mind, of course), playing board games or just a really awesome game of hide and seek with the lights out?

This year, the World Wildlife Fund is taking things a step further, by asking people to make short videos saying what they’ll be thinking about when the lights go out at momentofdarkness.ca. Before Earth Hour starts, you and the kids can browse videos by Canadian celebs such as Jason Priestley, William Shatner and Chris Hadfield. You can also see what regular Canadians, such as Kalen, have to say:

If you’re inspired, you can submit your own video here.  And if you want to leave the house Saturday night, there’s a couple of options as well.

FREE EARTH HOUR CONCERT – QUEEN ST. EAST AND SAULTER ST.

There’s a free outdoor concert hosted by WWF-Canada, the Ralph Thorton Centre and the Riverside BIA Saturday night, with performances by Etobicoke School of the Art’s Glo Show Choir and the Lucas Stagg Band. Between performances, there will be a lights out at 8:30 p.m. and a moment of reflection.

The Riverside BIA is holding environmentally-themed events all afternoon on Saturday, such as a lantern-making workshop from 2 – 5 p.m. For more information (including how to register) go here.

Earth Hour Concert, Queen and Saulter St., 7:45 p.m.,  416-489-8800.

EARTH HOUR CANDLELIGHT WALK  

Green 13 is having their annual guided walk along the Humber River. They’re encouraging you to turn out the lights at home before going out!

Earth Hour Candlelight Walk, Lambton House, 4066 Old Dundas, 7:45 p.m.

GET A BABYSITTER – WE WON’T JUDGE YOU

Mill St. Brewery is hosting a slew of grown-up concerts at various locations in the city. (You can always have an early Earth Hour at home with the kids, and then skip out –  plus the babysitter can continue the electricity boycott while you’re out, right?)

Earth Hour, March 29, 2014, 8:30 – 9:30 p.m.
