Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Dance in the streets with Porch Jazz. Tonight marks the beginning of both The Empire Life Kingston Jazz Festival and The Skeleton Park Music Festival. The two events have joined forces to combine some of the live music going on over the course of the next three days and one event that is sure to be a great time is Porch Jazz. Musicians will put on lively performances from various porches as a parade meanders through the Sydenham ward from noon-2:30 on Saturday afternoon. Find out more details about this event as well as other festival events here and check out this great video of last year’s Porch Jazz.
