Eat, Shop, and Win at City Harvest

The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice has taken over café menus, and I Love Local HFX’s City Harvest event is back for the 5th consecutive year. The annual event takes place October 22nd, when you’re encouraged to get out and support local businesses by eating, shopping, and exploring your way around Halifax. Local businesses are at the heart of Halifax–contributing to making Halifax the distinctly unique and welcoming city it is. Bishop’s Landing is proud to be a sponsor of City Harvest again this year, meaning there will be all kinds of exciting things happening in our Lower Water Street community. There is an extensive list of things to do around the city and here at Bishop’s Landing during City Harvest. Here are some highlights:
