Peterborough Man Dresses Up As Mickey Mouse To Help People Beat Monday Blues

You might have noticed Mickey Mouse hanging out on the corner of Lansdowne and Monaghan Street on Monday (February 27th) waving and dancing.

Well that was none other than the awesome Luke Heard—who, as you may recall, dressed up over Christmas and along with friends delivered toys to kids at PRHC.

So why'd he dress up as Mickey and stand on a street corner?

"A lot of people get a case of the Monday blues," Luke tells PTBOCanada. "So I thought I'd take away the blues and give smiles. A smile goes a long way and so does a wave! I love making Peterborough smile so that's why I do the things I do, not for attention but for admiration that the smallest of things can mean so much."

Luke tells PTBOCanada he even had a woman bring him a hot chocolate from the kindness of her own heart. He also had pictures taken with parents and their children. "Just seeing their smile makes my day," he says.
