Weekend Wrap-up: June 11-12, 2016

1. The oldest and largest cultural festival in Halifax, Greek Fest, is on! Join them this weekend for a taste of Greece in the heart of Halifax. Enjoy delicious food, be entertained by Greek music and dance, take free language classes, kids activities, a Byzantine Church tour & more!
2. The Clay Cafe has landed on Portland Street in Dartmouth and you’re invited to the Grand Opening celebration. Bring the whole family for a weekend of contests, prizes, face painting, pottery painting and more!
3. The town of Lunenburg is celebrating its 263rd birthday and you’re invited to join in the fun! Take the whole family on a road trip to check out Lego displays at the library, activities at the Arts school, buggy tours, free admission and open house events.
4. Head to a special Family Sunday at the AGNS to help welcome newcomers to Canada! In partnership with the YWCA Halifax they will be doing printmaking, creating colourful paintings, and making paper sculptures. This Family Sunday will be a chance to get creative, explore the Gallery, and make new friends in the community. All Welcome!
5. It’s time for Touch-A-Truck 2016! Children love to encounter unique and exciting vehicles up close (who doesn’t!), so once again there will be a collection of great vehicles – from trucks to fire engines, cars to bikes, diggers to boats…all in one space! Come and see them, touch them, sit in them, and have your picture taken!

About Urban Parent

Urban Parent (formally HRM Parent) is a an online community for families living, exploring and playing in the Halifax area. We connect local parents with events, information, services, products – and each other. Our online community of local parents is growing every day and we’re so grateful for all who are a part of it. Our Facebook and Twitter “inbox” questions have been known to cause some wild conversations, unite families with similar needs and most importantly let many parents know they are never alone! Urban Parent is run by local parents, for local parents. We know what a struggle it can be to find local information and resources, so we’ve done the work for you in the hope that it has made your day a little easier and maybe even given you some cool parent points with the kids! Have an idea for a blog? Need more information? Want to advertise with us? Just send us an email at info@urbanparent.ca we’d love to hear from you.
