Less than 48 hours stands between Open Streets at night and you!
In conjunction with the Waterloo Jazz Festival, join us in Uptown Waterloo this Saturday evening from 6 – 10 PM. From Bridgeport to Willis, the streets become open to pedestrians, cyclists, musicians, vendors, community groups and more! Look forward to an evening featuring:
At Bridgeport to Princess (Zone 1), Build a Luminaire with the kids – Open Streets volunteers will provide the materials so you can assemble and decorate your own paper bag lantern (additional tents are located along King). The Easter Seals Ontario Climbing Wall should be a hit with the fearless. And live bands will be playing at the Heuther Hotel.
The Thief & The Idiot will be grilling and serving at their restaurant lounge outside The Night School.
Roam around and when you feel peckish – The Thief and The Idiot will be serving up food on the street all night long.
From Princess to Dupont (Zone 2), fan favorites UW Juggling Club are returning! Watch the passionate pros or learn how to juggle yourself. Open Streets will have Wish on Ish - where you can decorate the dearly missed Ish & Chips lot fencing with your post-secret style wishes.
