that’s entertainment

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

The towns and cities of York Region offer lots of fun, entertaining activities in the summer months. Whether you’re in the mood to catch a movie and play some games at the arcade, or you’re more drawn to live entertainment, there’s something for you!

Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts

Located in the heart of the historic downtown area, the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts [RHCPA] is a state-of-the-art performance space that seats over 600 people. Featuring a variety of performances from acclaimed, professional artists, RHCPA performances celebrate the wide range of cultures in York Region. Follow the link above for schedules and ticket information, and be sure to check out the list of free summer concerts.

Newmarket Music in the Park

Every Thursday and Sunday night throughout the summer months, the Newmarket residents gather by Fairy Lake to enjoy an evening of culture, music and fun. Music in the Park is a free event hosted by the Town of Newmarket. Featuring performances from local entertainers, it’s a convenient, low-key evening that the whole family is guaranteed to enjoy. Come on out and support your local performers – they may just be the next big star!

Vaughan Colossus

Is there any better way to spend a humid, rainy summer day than taking in a movie with your friends or family? At Vaughan’s Colossus Cineplex, located right off Highway 7, you can catch all the latest flicks with your nearest and dearest. Additionally, Colossus is decked out with an XSCAPE Entertainment Centre, so you can spend time before and after the movie winning tickets for prizes in this interactive arcade.

If you haven’t visited one of these, add it to your list this summer – maybe it’ll be your new favourite place to go. York Region has lots of entertainment, and whether it’s indoor or outdoor, live performances or movies on the big screen; it’s all just a short transit ride away.

Thanks for making our Canada Day so great!

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

What a day we had on July 1st thanks to you! Our vivaNext teams attended both the Kanata Day festivities at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, and the Canada Day Home Show in Richmond Hill. Our teams spent the entire day talking to hundreds of enthusiastic residents – perhaps even you – who expressed great excitement about vivaNext projects and the urban transformation they will bring to York Region. Everybody had such great questions for us, which we were only too happy to answer.

We also had a lot of fun handing out thousands of informative pamphlets and bookmarks, handy magnetic whiteboards, and of course, delicious treats. After all, what’s a birthday party without treats. Our vivaNext mime was at Fairy Lake in Newmarket as well to entertain the kids while moms and dads spoke to our vivaNext team members.

In case you missed us on Canada Day, here are a few photos we thought you’d enjoy seeing!

Celebrate Canada’s birthday with vivaNext!

Friday, June 26th, 2009

On July 1, vivaNext teams will be out in the community at two different locations taking part in Canada Day celebrations and talking to local residents about our projects.

One of our teams will be at Fairy Lake in Newmarket for the Kanata Day festivities, where you can start the day with a pancake breakfast until noon for just $3 a serving. There will also be all sorts of other fun activities for the entire family to enjoy including inflatable bouncers, a bike competition, a baseball tournament, and live entertainment including our very own vivaNext mime. Then to top it all off, there will be the annual fireworks display presented by the Town of Newmarket.

Our second vivaNext team will be celebrating the day at the Canada Day Home Show in Richmond Hill. If you decide to spend the day there, be sure to drop by our booth to learn more about vivaNext. The Show’s taking place at the Sports Complex at 1300 Elgin Mills Road East from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At vivaNext, we can’t think of a better way to spend Canada Day than with all of the great people who reside in York Region. We look forward to seeing you!
