Today at 1:30pm, the Chinatown Remixed Collective will feature 40 artists paired up with local businesses between Bay and Preston.
The festival kicks off with Mike Essourdy's Mash Potato Mashers leading a brass band, then from 2pm onward, everyone's invited to mass art vernissages, street performances and some free stuff from participating restaurants and stores.

My favourite pick is The Latest Artists, who will unleash their Remote
Control Robots, giving the public a chance to control a pair
of live, humanized robots, competing to complete various tasks and
activities. Check them out at Dalhousie Community Centre (755 Somerset St W).
The festival is on until 5pm.
