Have you heard?! Halifax is an OPEN CITY: THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

You won't find a more opportune time to visit downtown Halifax than this Mother's day  weekend. With 75 participating shops and restaurants, the city will be teeming with fun activities, great deals, and local business showing off their best stuffs.

Barrington street in particular will be a hotspot with Chives offering Side Door Takeout (Bacon Double Cheeseburger Sliders w/ Kettle Chips!! yummmm $5) and North Face (Maritime Summit) hosting a kids drawing contest. Our friends at Attica will have a tax free event, 
while The Discovery Center is organizing a scavenger hunt!! FUN!!

What will WE be doing? Well, for starters we'll have a wonderfully beautiful display of Ikebana flower arrangements created by Miyako Ballesteros, set in pottery by Mindy Moore. We hope you'll join us on Saturday from 2-4 to meet the artists.
(Exhibition  continues Sunday, May 13 from 12-5pm and May 15-16 from 10-5:30pm)  

We're sure you'll adore them..

And if that wasn't enticing enough, we'll also have a ballot for a 
$25 gift certificate here at the gallery.That's an awful lot of excitement for one weekend eh?!?! We can't wait to see you all, so dig out your walking shoes, and prepare yourselves for a lovely weekend in downtown Halifax.
