Summer doesn’t officially begin until June, but that won’t stop early celebrations for the upcoming summer season. On May 20, Summer Kick-Off presented by Pepsi is giving Mississauga a taste of what’s to come at Mississauga Celebration Square this summer.
The City is elevating its game with high flying acts like an aerial Cirque show from A2D2’s Elevate: A Cirque Production and a bike stunt team performance from Krusher’s Extreme Bike Show. Then get loud and jam to a number of musical activities, including the Thunder Station Interactive Drumming Workshop and an Air Guitar Along led by Air Guitar Canada.
Hungry visitors can stop by a Mini Farmers Market or one of the many food trucks on the Square. There will also be many kids’ activities such as kids’ theatrical performances, Silly Putty Making Station, air brush face painting and more.
