Canada Day fireworks over by 10 p.m.

For some reason, the Canada Day fireworks started about 15 minutes before their scheduled time of 10 p.m. last night. The show was all over before 10 p.m., taking some people by surprise and disappointing those who had planned to arrive just before the scheduled time.

Ahmed Hussen’s spokesperson told me that the MP was at the Amesbury fireworks there and couldn’t shed any light on the reasons for Weston’s early start. There was nobody available at Councillor Nunziata’s office when I called but will update any response received.

Upcoming events

Big events are coming up.

Canada Day is always great in Weston. There will be a celebration and fireworks at Weston Lions Park.

There will also be a celebration in Amesbury Park.

The Cultural Hotspot dance party kickoff will be this Friday, July 5, under the lights of Nyctophilia.

Weston’s amazing Buskerfest will be July 20th. It’s a blast, and looks to be extra great this year. Trapeze artists?!


NNO a smash

Neighbours’ Night Out was a smash this year. The weather was wonderful, and hundreds of people came out to listen to live music, eat, and  just hang out.

Neighbours’ Night Out is, if you ask me, one of Weston’s highlights—up there with the Santa Claus Parade. But things keep getting better. This year, I think more community organizations than ever were there: off the top of my head, the WHCD, Frontlines, some weirdos who think that sweating is fun, and Shakespeare in Action. Some great-looking vendors were there, too—but I ran out of time because I talk too much.
