Sydney Waterfront District, in collaboration with CBRM Recreation and Pride Cape Breton Society, will host the Sydney Waterfront Street Festival on Saturday, August 6th. The day will be full of events, including the Pride Parade, Rainbow Market, Sidewalk Sale, and the second annual Food Truck Round Up.
“We are thrilled to partner with CBRM Recreation and Pride Cape Breton!” said Janelle Osborne, Sydney Waterfront District President. “We hope this collaboration will bring an incredible experience to visitors and residents of all ages in our district. The district merchants have gathered lots of products for the Sidewalk Sale. And at the Round Up, we will have live music by Robbie Simms and Mark Boutilier, and face painting, sidewalk chalk, and games in a children’s area!”
As part of the Sydney Harbourfront Festival, Sydney Waterfront Street Festival will begin at 9am with the Sidewalk Sale and Rainbow Market in Wentworth Park through to Charlotte Street and surrounding area. The Rainbow Market will feature a wide range of vendors and information while there will be no shortage of unique and practical merchandise on offer at the Sidewalk Sale. The Pride Parade will travel from Crescent Street, along the Esplanade to Charlotte Street at noon. Visit pridecapebreton.ca for parade route and 2016 Pride Festival events. The Food Truck Round Up will be set up at the corner of Pitt Street and George Street, with a few vendors in Wentworth Park, from 11am to 5pm.
“The success we saw in the 2015 pilot Food Truck Round Up project went beyond our expectations, serving nearly two thousand hungry customers,” said Elizabeth Arsenault of CBRM recreation. “With a growing food truck industry in Cape Breton, this year’s event has attracted even more vendors, highlighting the variety of food trucks our municipality has to offer.”
