Save up your energy for the Black & Blue Festival later this fall (Oct. 3-9). It’s the world’s largest benefit dance festival held each year during Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. It raises money for HIV/AIDS support in the gay community. Put on your dancing shoes and prepare for a massive rave that goes from dusk until dawn at the old Olympic Stadium. The event attracts more than 50,000 people annually who dance all night in the name of charity.
