It was a bit like Guy Lombardo counting down to the New Year.
Except instead of the stroke of midnight, it was 4:20 p.m. And instead of popping the cork on bottles of champagne, the reggae musician urged the Victoria Park crowd to "Get your bong ready and spark that (stuff) up!"
And then the crowd lit pipes and joints of marijuana.
And frankly, it was a lot calmer than any New Year's Eve party I've ever attended.
It was all part of 420 Day, an annual counter-culture celebration for marijuana enthusiasts around the world.
