Open Streets Windsor will be returning to local neighbourhoods in September with an Ontario 150 Celebration.
The festival will take place on Sept. 17, 2017, with new, extended hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The event will cover an eight-kilometre stretch between Sandwich Street, University Avenue West, Wyandotte Street East and Drouillard Road.
Event organizers are looking for volunteers, organizations, and businesses to contribute their ideas and activities for various hubs set up along the route.
New this year, Open Streets has dedicated an entire zone to Ontario’s 150th Anniversary in recognition of the history and diversity in the community. Ontario’s 150 hub will be located on University Avenue between Bruce and Janette.
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about how 3D printing is used to create a model of the provincial flower- the Trillium.
People will also be invited to take a break and enjoy entertainment provided by local multicultural groups.
The Museum Windsor and First Nations exhibits will be open to the public. Anyone interested in contributing to a community mural piece will have the opportunity.
Open Streets Windsor invites residents to enjoy a cupcake or cookie as they celebrate Ontario's 150 with your friends, family and neighbours.
