Party time! Celebrating the first-ever SOLO District Block Party



Did you get a chance to come check out the first-ever SOLO District Block Party?


Held on Skyline Drive on Saturday, June 25, the four-hour event offered residents, businesses and neighbours a chance to celebrate our growing community. Prizes were handed out, faces were painted and lots of laughter was heard.

We captured some of the fun in photos.
