Have you ever wondered what’s happening in your neighbourhood?

What's Happening in your Neighbourhood


Have you ever checked out your local community centre or neighbourhood association?  They organize activities, programming, events, learning and advocacy opportunities and more!  Winter 2023 program calendars and registrations will be out over the next few weeks at community centres around Kitchener-Waterloo.  Make sure to check them out before it’s too late!


The annual Gifts of Lights drive-thru holiday light display at Bingeman’s is now on for the winter 2022 season! Get into the holiday spirit by listening to holiday tunes and watching the mesmerizing light show.   It is running now and until December 31st. You can enjoy the show from the comfort of a vehicle or partake in their special “walk only” nights.
