Riverfest and Fall Street Festival in our Neighbourhood

THUNDER BAY – It is a Thunder Bay fall morning this bright and sunny looking morning. There is also a lot of fun awaiting you if you are up for it.

At Kam River Park, it is Riverfest. You can tour the James Whalen, check out the Coast Guard, and learn about the area that was once the Kam River Industrial area.

Across the downtown south, the Thunder Bay Public Library is hosting their annual book sale. Looking forward to winter and the opportunity to curl up in a favourite chair with a great book? Today is the day to get down to the Victoriaville Centre and stock up.

Along May Street and Victoria Street East, the Fall Street Festival is going on. This annual event features, music, a fashion show, great food, and fun for the kids.

Merchants across the downtown are banding together with a theme. “We have a neighbourhood to build”, and this fantastic and historic part of our city is starting to work together to make the neighbourhood a fun, engaging and enjoyable place to visit, shop and be. For more information, visit ‘We have a neighbourhood to build’ on Facebook.

Youth Centres Thunder Bay are hosting a booth at the Street Festival raising funds for Youth Tbay, the exciting youth centre that is a public / private partnership at 711 Victoria Avenue, just inside the west side of Victoriaville. These great teens are working hard to make a difference in our city and deserve your help. Stop by their booth and get yourself a great meal!

The Blue Door Bistro is going to have box lunches available, and Fox on the Run is already setting up on May Street.

Steepers Tea is going to be offering their amazing crepes today as well.
