Eating and shopping local are things we think about pretty often but what about playing local? What does that even mean? As you’ve probably gathered by now, we’re not ones to give you a long list to rules and regulations but have you considered how you entertain yourself and your family? There are lots of community groups that offer things to do, often cheaply and that lead to connections within your community. Live Local KW has partnered with Grand Social and SnapdKW to show you a variety of events that are happening in town. On a budget? Stay local and take a book to a park. We’re lucky to have so much green space and hopefully the weather will hold up that week. Here’s a few more ideas for that week:
- Grab a copy of a local paper and catch up with community news. My ties are to theCord Community Edition but there’s lots (including excellent magazines & journals like The New Quarterly & Alternatives Journal)
- Foodlink Waterloo Region is hosting it’s 11th annual Taste Local! Taste Fresh event on Sunday, September 14 and they’re offering a special discount to Live Local KW participants.
- Asphalt Jungle Shorts XI starts on Thursday, September 18. More details here.
- Doors Open Waterloo takes place this year on Saturday, September 20th. This is not to be missed, you’ll get peaks at corners of KW which you might not see on the daily.
