Major Event Headed to Celebration Square This Month


Despite the chilly (very chilly) spring, the warm weather is on route and there's no better way to celebrate the start of the summer season than by enjoying a complimentary celebration at Mississauga's biggest event space.

The city of Mississauga recently announced that "imagination and storybooks [will] come to life this Victoria day at Celebration Square.”

The upcoming Pep Rally event, which will be hosted by CBC Radio's Nana aba Dunca, will be the Square's first signature event of the season.

A few fun and family-friendly activities that are on tap include:

  • story-time with CBC Kids' Bookaboo at 12:45 and 2:15 p.m.;

  • a silent dance party, where kids get to DJ using musical lego blocks and wireless headphones;

  • an orchestra that will let anyone step-up to the maestro stand - performances throughout the afternoon by Euphonia, a classical, indie orchestra;

  • bubble shows and a bubble station by Bubbleology on the upper square;

  • roaming characters from your favourite folk and fairy tales, including Belle, Little Red Riding Hood, Little Bo Peep and Shrek;

  • local authors Cary Fagan and Patricia Storms will be reading and hosting drawing workshops throughout the afternoon;

  • a miniature (10' tall) version of the international art sensation, the Big Rubber Duck, will be visiting the fountain; and

  • the Kidzone, supported by Bell, will feature a host of activities, including face painting, an imaginative play zone and a playground building station.

In terms of food, there will be a ton of food trucks available (as it often the case at the Square), so don't worry about packing a lunch.

The event will kick off on Monday, May 22 at noon and run until 4:00 p.m.
