The Mohawk Library blog is happy to introduce a new feature called “In the City” – highlighting activities and events happening in and around the great city of Hamilton. This week, In the City will take a look at the Gore Park summer promenade, the James Street North art crawl, and the Hamilton airshow.
The Gore Park summer promenade runs from June 3rd through to August 30th; it is an initiative of the Downtown Hamilton BIA. The event is held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday each week, from 11am – 5:30pm. The Gore Park summer promenade invites everyone to take a walk through beautiful Gore Park and visit with local businesses, artists, vendors, and local food trucks. Entertainment is provided by different local musicians each day. The heart of the downtown core has never been more inviting!
The James Street North monthly art crawl is tonight, and it looks like the weather is going to cooperate. In a recent article in Chatelaine (June 2013), art crawl is described as “…a festival of creativity, music and food. Galleries stay open late, and bars host local musicians as the action spills out onto the sidewalks.” It’s no surprise that the Hamilton Public Library’s Central branch is getting involved! At 7 pm you can join HPL Archivist Margaret Houghton, for a Historic Walk of James Street North. The Central branch, which will be open from 7-10 pm, will also feature displays and exhibits.

The Hamilton Airshow is an annual event held in June at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. The event features the World’s only flying Mosquito, parachutists, vintage aircraft and so much more! The flying show runs from 1 pm to almost 5 pm, on Saturday and Sunday, and is a family friendly event.
