Tomorrow is Love Locke Day in Hamilton

A different kind of mob is expected on Locke Street in downtown Hamilton this weekend.

Tomorrow is Love Locke Day,  a day to support business owners on the street who are still fixing the damage done by a group of about 30 anarchists last weekend.

The group marched up the street throwing rocks and eggs at windows and setting off fireworks causing more than $100,000 in damage.

Thousands of people from across Southern Ontario are expected to visit the trendy street tomorrow.

One local business owner, Lisa Dalia who owns Solee Shoes says the vandals may have done them a favour, it brought everyone together, in a way she never could have imagined.

And it's been good for business, Monster Donuts for example ran out of product three days in a row because so many customers have come in to buy some eats and show support.
