Wilson Street ribbon cutting and grand reopening
November 18, 2017 at 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Guelph, Ont., October 31, 2017 – The City of Guelph and the Downtown Guelph Business Association (DGBA) are hosting a Wilson Street grand reopening on Saturday, November 18.
The event will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony by City of Guelph Mayor, Cam Guthrie. Some of the festivities will include local musicians playing in select Wilson Street businesses, face painting for children, a prize draw* and an interactive passport. The passport will be used like a treasure hunt to collect a hot drink from The Common, a Killer Cupcakes treat or a flower from Sweet Violets. Passport cards can then be submitted to enter a draw. The first two draws get a $250 gift certificate for the shops on Wilson Street and the final draw will receive a $500 gift certificate.
The grand re-opening will celebrate the businesses on Wilson Street and the wrap up of construction that started late July. Along with new sewer and water pipes, the street has been redesigned to the 2014 Downtown Streetscape Manual standards, including larger sidewalks, new street benches, lighting, trees and a new pedestrian island across from Wilson Street on Macdonell Street.
