I wrote about the seeing a couple Free Hug Campaigners outside the art gallery a while ago and it looks as though they’ll be at it again. According to a Facebook group, and Isabella’s blog, today is “Free Hug Day”.

Start Time: Monday, September 10, 2007 at 12:00am – End Time: Tuesday, September 11, 2007 at 12:00am
September 10th, 2007 will be remembered as the biggest Free Hug day this world has ever seen.

Vancouver’s event will take place once again near the Art Gallery steps (facing West) on Robson. I already passed by one dude with a sign earlier while he was being filmed by Channel M. You have until Midnight to get your hug-on.
