On Sunday, at the Canadian Colour Festival, 150 dancers came together for a rainbow-powdered flash mob to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial.

Beneath the clouds of neon dust in a parking lot in Mississauga, there was the city’s mayor, Bonnie Crombie, covered in green and orange powder after dancing with crowds of kids as part of Rung De’ ONE (RDO).

“I think this is my fourth Rung De’ ONE and the first couple, I said ‘no, no I can’t get coloured because I have to go somewhere else after, I can’t celebrate with you,’ ” she said, her hair blotched yellow and pink.
