No Pants Metro Ride

Begins at Mount-Royal metro.
Well, guys, it's finally here. No, I'm not talking about winter; and I'm not talking about 2017. I'm talking about Montreal's No Pants Metro Ride.
The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event taking place across the globe in the wintertime. This year, the official date is January 8, 2017.
It started in New York City, way back in 2002 (15 years ago!), by Improv Everywhere, a New York-based group dedicated to causing scenes (according to their website).
At this point, it's spread pretty much everywhere, including Italy, Sweden, Los Angeles, Chicago, and, yup, Montreal.
The reason for the No Pants Subway Ride?
Absolutely nothing. Just because. Being fun just for the sake of being fun. There's nothing political or charitable about it, according to the Facebook event page.
Montreal's version of the event will go down on January 8 at 2:30 PM.
It'll begin at Mont-Royal metro. The route hasn't been announced just yet, but it'll be posted before the event so you can join in pretty much whenever.
The only rules? Don't block the passageways in metro stations, do be respectful, and of course... come without pants.
