We’re all ramping up for summer here in Halifax. There’s a lot of activities and festivals on the books for our seaside city in the 2013 sunny season! Since there is so much going on, let’s take a look at a few June event highlights…
HRM Bike Week
Starting THIS weekend and lasting until June 11th! ClickÂ hereÂ for full event listings – there are fun, active bike-related activities happening all over HRM for the whole family. Our favourite is the annual Open Street Party at the Halifax Common and skating oval (on this Sunday).
Seasons by Atlantica is offering 15% off foodÂ for anyone who comes in with their bike helmet during Bike Week! PLUS we’re extending that offer through the end of August for anyone who comes in with theirÂ I Heart BikesÂ receipt from that day!
Stay tuned for our summer Spot the Bike photo competition!
The Oval: Summer Edition
We are just so excited that our neighbour the Emera Skating Oval will beÂ opening to roller and inline skating, plus other activities over the summer!Â The city is buying hundreds of pairs of inline skates that will be available to the public. All the details aren’t ready just yet – but stay tunedÂ here. (Also stay tuned for stay and skate packages coming your way!)
