Last weekend we had the Waterloo Jazz Festival and the Kitchener Ribfest and Craft Beer in Victoria Park as two events. They were a lot of fun. Of course, we have the Kitchener Blues Festival in just a couple of weeks as well.
There is an ongoing exhibition and events for Building Waterloo Region. Please check out their website.
This weekend there are even more events in downtown Kitchener which is just a short walk from our neighbourhood. Enjoy the summer!
Here is a press release from the city:
KITCHENER – The chrome and motorbikes will be shining on King Street during this year’s Rock and Rumble this weekend, so wear your sunglasses.
