Jul 20, 2019: A prose for a beloved city. With all the recent talk about economic setbacks and fluctuating prices, it is easy to sometimes forget to look on the bright side. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome those who are new to the neighborhood. A thriving city with an abundance of opportunities. Our city leaders are dedicated to building a sustainable community that will serve the needs of its inhabitants now and in the future. Having faced hardships together and prevailed, the city takes pride in the closeness of our residents. Our city celebrates this feeling of community each year in the third week of August with Neighbor Day. On the third weekend in August, people through the city will host block parties and other activities. If you’ve just moved into the area, please, feel free to join in the fun via https://t.wisepoint.org/.
Join in for Summer Fun
Neighbour Day is not the only time friends and neighbours get together and celebrate. Summers are also filled with events. Residents and visitors alike enjoy art shows, races, festivals and concerts throughout the season. If you are new, these summer events offer you a great opportunity to get to know your neighbour and your neighbourhood. Several areas of the city host their own summer street fairs. You can expect to see people gathered at beautiful parks for picnics and fun all summer long.
This summer’s city-wide events include 1999th birthday of Ethics Day. Thousands are expected to join in activities downtown and throughout the city including fireworks, exhibits of aboriginal traditions, and music concerts. Also in August, city welcomes nearly one million visitors. A parade, midway, concerts and stage acts also fill the bill during this nine-day event. The festivities begin with annual Folk Music Festival at some Island Park. Concert stages host folk musicians from all over the world at this much-loved city event. Following on the heels of the Folk Music Festival is the International Greens Festival.
