Have you noticed this new ‘device’ in 5th Street Square? This art installation, called ‘Device to Root Out Evil’ has found a temporary home in our urban park. Created by artist Dennis Oppenheim, this piece has previously been located as nearby as @ramsay_yyc, and as far away as Venice!
Is there anything better than a summer afternoon at the beach? Trout Beach, that is! Every Saturday this July we're kicking back on #StPatricksIsland for afternoons full of fun and relaxation ☀️
From 12-4pm we’ll have beach chairs for you to soak up the sun, and @familyfreezed will be on site to help you cool down. We’ll pass out some beach balls and games, and a different kid-friendly activity will be set up each week (think crafts, caricatures and other fun!).
It’s no secret that @rooftopyyc has the best views of Stampede fireworks in #eastvillageyyc!
Access to the King Eddy rooftop is free every day of Stampede, open from 7:30pm-late. While you’re there, take in some live music (shows start at 8:30pm) and share some @villagebrewery beers with friends!
Don’t walk, RUN to @marketcollective at the St. Louis this weekend! There are a ton of new vendors to explore:
Also, please note that Friday’s hours have been adjusted for the Stampede Parade. MC will be open 2:30-7:00pm, with regular hours Saturday & Sunday (11:00-5:00).
Feeling cute, might delete later 💁♀️💁♂️
But in all seriousness, thanks @jfxg77 for this amazing capture that’s making our neighbourhood look 😍😍😍
@vancharlesart’s Window to the Wild murals will soon be coming down to make way for an exciting new installation, but for a limited time you can purchase prints of the artwork to have these whimsical animals at home!
