Afterglow Community Report – June 21st

The countdown to summer is over. June 21st marks the first day of summer, the longest day of the year and we are marking the occasion with lots of great events in Waterloo.

Uptown Waterloo has been bustling this spring, with cool car days like Cruzin’ in the Square classic car show, and memorable live musical performances and Open Streets. I’m amazed at the transformation this area undergone. Born and raised in Waterloo I’ve seen this city flourish and grow into what it is today. It wasn’t long ago the Public Square was a parking lot, surrounded by discount stores.

 My family and I are looking forward to spending the weekend at the public square.

 Grab some delicious edibles and crafts drinks at Solstice Sampling  this Friday June 21st 7-11pm in the Uptown Square.

Steel Rails 2013 departs at 7pm this Friday as well. Local artists and members of the community come together for party on a Waterloo train. (Unfortunately the event has been sold out for many weeks.)

Opening weekend has finally come for my friends at Taco Farm. This will be its first weekend with open doors and I know its unique menu and margarita list is sure to please!

All in all a busy weekend in Waterloo and there’s only more to come for my favourite community and home.

See you in Waterloo!
