Locally owned Halifax businesses which make the city so special

from the folks at I LOVE LOCAL HFX:

What began as an experiment in 2012 is now our biggest initiative of the year and one of the highlights of our fair city. This year’s Open City will be held on Saturday May 10 and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Our theme this year is LIVE LIFE LOUD – which may be self explanatory to some, but for others you may be wondering what the heck we mean by that.

Like much of Open City, it’s open to interpretation, but we when we say we want you to LIVE LIFE LOUD, we mean we want you to try new things, to get out of your house – and maybe your comfort zone, and explore new tastes, new experiences, new culture, and meet new people.

How much more vibrant would our city be if just some of those take out meals were enjoyed actually in the restaurants, or in our parks, on our waterfront – instead of sitting in your house tweeting about it.

How much more vibrant would our city be if we didn’t go home at 9:00 – if we stayed out, walking the streets of your neighbourhood, listening to a jazz trio busking in Victoria Park.

How much more exciting would your kids find the trip to the Saturday market if afterwards they went for a picnic to Point Pleasant Park, or even McNab’s Island for the day.

How much richer would your life be if rather than reading a blog about art, you actually went to our galleries, makerspaces, or universities and experienced it in real-time.

So, it’s up to us to entertain you on May 10, but it’s up to you to come out and take part in as much as you can possibly squeeze into a day.
