Is anyone else having a meltdown because it’s already August or is that just us? Pretty soon it will be back to school, turkey dinners and Christmas shopping. We are determined to take full advantage of the sunshine and Summer vibes! We have come up with a list of awesome events to check out locally before Summer comes to an end.
August 8-11 | Victoria Park | kitchenerbluesfest.com
Bluesfest is back and is perfect entertainment for the whole family – even better, it’s free most of the weekend! Awesome live performances, food trucks, vendors and activities in Victoria Park all weekend long.
SPLASH PAD TUESDAY
Every Tuesday | Victoria Park | 10 AM to 12 PM | kwmomsclub.com/index.php/events
If you’ve got little ones at home and are itching for a reason to get out and socialize while keeping the kids happy, KW Moms Club meets every Tuesday morning from 10 to 12 at the Victoria Park Splash Pad.
AVIATION FUN DAY
August 17 | Region of Waterloo International Airport | 10 AM to 4 PM | www.waterlooairport.ca/en/about-ykf/aviation-fun-day.aspx
A free event for the family to learn how the aviation industry works, get up close to the airport equipment, vintage aircrafts and classic cars. They have requested that visitors kindly bring a non-perishable food item or a cash donation in support of the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank and The Food Bank of Waterloo Region – a small price to pay for a day of fun and education.
