#ygkChallenge: Go Downtown!

downtown ygk, Canada Day, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkChallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkChallenge encourages you to:

Spend some time in downtown Kingston. It was a long winter but school is officially out, the sun is shining and The Big Dig is over! Tomorrow marks the official end to Phase 3 of downtown Kingston’s Big Dig, which has taken over Princess Street between Clergy and Bagot for the past several months. Construction workers are adding the finishing touches in preparation for tomorrow’s Canada Day celebrations in downtown ygk, so this week we challenge you to go downtown! Join in on the Red and White People Parade that runs down the newly opened street to City Hall starting at Barrie and Princess at 11:30am. Catch the Civic Ceremony and Awards on the steps of City Hall at noon and enjoy live music all afternoon at Confederation Basin. It’s time to get back downtown to show our local shops and restaurants how much we love and value them. So, this week, eat, shop and play in downtown ygk!

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.

Thanks to Queen’s University for today’s photo.
