August 3 - Kids' Day!

This Sunday is Kids' Day! To celebrate we have the fabulous Spleit Strings Orchestra who will be performing at 6:30. In addition, they'll have a tent with violins for kids to come by and try out and to learn more about their program. At 7:45 Hamilton indie alt-folk band The Human Orchestra will take the stage for a rousing set of music.   We'll finish off the evening with a special showing of The Lego Movie on our giant outdoor screen, set to begin as soon as it is dark enough, usually 9pm, weather permitting.   Some of our favourite food trucks will be joining us, too, making it a perfect evening for dinner, music, and an awesome movie. Pick up dinner for the family from karma chaMEALeon, The Meatball Shoppe, Urban Express, Willy Dog McMaster, the Salted Pig and top it off with dessert from Rudy's and Kool Jim's…
