Whether you like to get outside for a crisp walk along the Halifax boardwalk or indulge in some hearty comfort food, almost everyone loves to enjoy autumn. This weekend is the perfect time to do just that—City Harvest is being held Saturday, October 20th at local restaurants and shops around Halifax and Dartmouth. The spirit of community comes alive during the annual event: Haligonians come out to support local businesses, who in turn offer promotions and specials such as off-menu backdoor takeout, free samples, and discounts.
Coinciding with Small Business Week, it’s the perfect time to plan your day around enjoying what our city has to offer. In downtown Halifax, Waterfront Development is making this year’s City Harvest even more accessible by offering complimentary parking in their Lower Water Street parking lots. In this article, we’ve provided tips on how to make the most out of your City Harvest local adventure.
