Downtown streets will come alive to celebrate summer with evening activities in August.

“The City of Campbell River invites you downtown to enjoy a variety of free activities on those balmy long summer evenings,” says Linda Nagle, the city’s recreation program coordinator.

CR Live Streets is a series of three Wednesday evening activities, including an outdoor movie, a chalk fest event and an evening of art and artisans.

Aug. 3 the Show on the Row movie will be the Jungle Book. Bring your chairs, enjoy snacks from the food carts at the venue and settle in to enjoy the show.

Aug. 10 Shoppers Row will become a canvas for Chalkfest, with a professional chalk artist and a public competition with great prizes. Pick up supper or snacks from the many food carts on site; watch the artistic action or create your own masterpiece on the asphalt. Aug. 17 will be a night market of artisan vendors, food carts and music, with a performance of the Pied Piper on the Spirit Square stage by Raincoast Creative Performing Arts.

“CR Live Streets supports council’s priority to make downtown a more vibrant people place, and these evening activities will be a great way to gather with friends and neighbours and enjoy our downtown, and add to successful events such as the Spirit Square summer Thursday night concert series,” says Mayor Andy Adams.
