The great weather is here, and with it comes a plethora of great neighbourhood events. In addition to the weekly farmers’ markets, there is Riverside Eats and Beats, the Riverdale Art Walk, 100 in 1 Day urban interventions, and the Great Annual Riverdale Street Sale. The forecast for Saturday is looking promising, so we hope to see lots or our neighbours enjoying these events.
100 in 1 Day
100 in 1 day is a citizen driven festival where people across the city create acts of urban change. There are more than 160 of these urban “interventions” planned across the city, which can be found on the project’s website 100in1day.ca
Friends of Withrow Park have planned several interventions at Withrow Park for Saturday June 7. This sounds like a fun opportunity to get to know your neighbours!
