The Town of Halton Hills will be unveiling their second rainbow crosswalk next week.

The crosswalk is being installed in Acton at the intersection of Main St. and River St. and the official ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on June 15 at 2:00 p.m.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be live-streamed on Facebook. Residents are invited to join the virtual celebrations that will be taking place in front of the Halton Hills Public Library Acton Branch.

“The second rainbow-painted crosswalk in Acton represents a permanent show of support for our 2SLGBTQ+ community,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

“And it’s also a visible reminder that everyone is welcome in Halton Hills.”

The colourful crosswalk represents the town’s commitment to embracing diversity and inclusion while showing support for Halton Hills 2SLGBTQ+ residents.

“I am pleased to see Halton Hills showing support for Pride and the 2SLGBTQ+ community with the addition of a second rainbow crosswalk located in Acton,” said Councillor Clark Somerville.

“It represents an opportunity to stand in support of diversity and inclusion.”

The first rainbow crosswalk in Halton Hills is located at the intersection of Market St. and Church St. in Georgetown and was installed back in 2020.
