THUNDER BAY – The summer of 2020 might end up in the books as the summer of non-summer. With so many of the popular events and facilities not open, except for virtual music concerts, many are left looking for things to do.

The “Staycation” has become an idea many people have embraced.

There are also lots of great ideas for activities for families and for couples.

While you can’t go swimming this summer at Boulevard Lake, the walkway, and of course the Mini-Putt is open. With the announcement that Boulevard Lake is closed, you can still enjoy the area.

Get your legs and lungs in shape?

Remember the early days of COVID-19? It seemed everyone was busy baking up every tasty treat possible. Flour, yeast, and baking powder were almost impossible to find.

Well, now it is time to wear off the added pounds all that tasty food put on. The “COVID-Belly” isn’t what you want to remember from the pandemic, is it?

Ian Cameron over at Community Spokes, located in The Hub Bazaar is ready to help. From fixing up your current bike to offering fair prices on used bikes, Ian is the man.

When you stop by The Hub Bazaar, you can browse The Red Bicycle for some fantastic furniture, grab a snack at Wild Thyme and take a breather with some no-pressure time shopping. Just remember to bring a mask, The Hub is practicing COVID-19 Safety to protect you.
