Community groups from across Kingston will join the festivities, bringing their unique offerings and contributions to the mix. This is your chance to learn more about the heart of your city, meet your neighbours, and engage with the community in a fun and relaxed environment.
And of course, no celebration would be complete without food. The Princess Street Promenade is the perfect opportunity to explore the culinary delights of downtown Kingston. Take a break from the excitement and refuel at one of the many local restaurants. Whether you fancy a trip to the Ceasar Co. for a royal treat, a refreshing pint at the Toucan, or a hearty meal at the Buckle, there’s something for every palate.
