Sailing, Lake Ontario, Kingston, OntarioWe’ve finally hit another long weekend, and lucky for me, I’m extending my time off into next week for some much needed rest and relaxation.  Fret not, we’ve already got some terrific programming lined up on Kingstonist, so you won’t have to go without.  Speaking of outstanding content, we’re flattered that Kingstonist was recognized on page 60 of the City’s draft Cultural Policy Plan.  It’s both humbling and exciting to get noticed amongst all the extremely talented company listed therein.  Here’s hoping that we can continue to grow the site in a positive direction, and provide more valuable coverage of the arts and culture scene in and around the Limestone City.

This Saturday, be sure to check out the inaugural Princess Street Promenade as well as Music in the Park featuring Roger James.  What else is going on in Kingston this weekend?  While there’s no shortage of things to see and do, sometimes we need a little help for our friends.  So what are you plans and recommended activities over the long weekend.  And on that note, who gets to name these holidays?  Politicians, or is there some secret holiday naming office I’m unfamiliar with.  I think we can do better than “civic” holiday.  How about we call it Awesome Day instead?  Any day I don’t have to go to work is awesome, but I digress.

Special thanks to J.A.G. for supplying today’s amazing photo, which captures the magic that’s happening along Kingston’s waterfront. It goes to show that there’s much more to see than boats run aground in this city.
