We Can’t Win Them All, or Can You?


While the KW Titans were not able to take home a win, they sure scored a win with their fans! They broke an attendance record last night and many of their young fans were excited to meet the team after the game. 

Kids got to go see @kwtitans Home Opener last night! Thanks @those2girls for helping mum get tickets! #basketball

Bingemans Brings Back The #GiftOfLightsKW For The 2017 Holiday Season

Click To Enlarge



On November 16th we once again attended the Bingemans Gift Of Lights Media Event to see this wonderful light display. Being the second time attending, we figure it is now a Christmas tradition!

A Mix of Old and New For This Year’s Gift of Lights at Bingemans


After enjoying our trek through last year’s Gift Of Lights we were excited to see this year’s collection of Christmas Lights.  As we travelled through the two-kilometer light show we came along new displays as well as some of the favourites from last year.  This includes Diane’s favourite the tumbling penguins.

It was great to see the mix of old and new while we cruised through the twinkling lights.  To give you an idea of what last year’s Gift Of Lights entailed, watch the video below

As you can see there are already some big changes happening during this year’s event.

 

An Event for Everyone


While many outdoor Christmas light events require you to park your vehicle and walk through their display, this light show keeps you warm and toasty inside the comfort of your own vehicle.

You won’t have to worry about bad weather, deep snow and/or slippery pathways.  This is a relief to many seniors and those with accessibility concerns.  We believe this makes the Gift of Lights an event for everyone!

 

Bask in the Glow of the Glittering Lights


You will want to experience the Gift of Lights first hand.  Grab your family, friends or co-workers and descend upon the winding trail of this display all while enjoying the Christmas music being played on your vehicle’s radio and get a chance to bask in the glow of this glittering light show. The Gift of Lights is now open evenings until January 6, 2018 and you can save on tickets by purchasing them online.

Gift of Lights Ticket Info

This year a portion of the proceeds will benefit THE GRAND RIVER HOSPITAL FOUNDATION so know that your ticket purchase is helping to fund a local organization.

Tickets are $25 + tax for a single vehicle (up to 8 passengers) at the gate, but you can SAVE by purchasing your tickets online at https://wl.seetickets.us/event/Gift-of-Lights/353282?afflky=Bingemans&sp=F1SMER

There you can also buy add-ons and even purchase a SPEED PASS to put you in the priority line!

We think this is a great tradition for you and your family and could even make a great gift for those living in the Kitchener Waterloo area. Let us know if you have attended the Gift of Lights or intend to by leaving a comment at the end of this post!

Things Are Coming Together at the Waterloo Park Project Thanks to #TDCommonGround


This post is sponsored by TD and the TD Common Ground Project



We'll start with the Disclaimer - Yes this is a sponsored post, but this just means we're able to tell you about all the great things happening at Waterloo Park!


In June when we mentioned that Waterloo Park was making some big changes thanks to #TDCommonGround. The #TDCommonGround Project is an initiative by TD to revitalize green spaces across Canada in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday.  The infographic below, based on the findings from the TD GreenSights report, shows why green spaces are important to each community.



Together TD and The City of Waterloo are creating change in Waterloo Park to improve both pedestrian and bicycle traffic throughout the park.  One way this will be accomplished is by the construction of an additional bridge in the park.  The twinning of the Silver Lake bridge will help people get to their destinations in the park in a convenient way.  Another project that is being worked on is a dedicated cycling lane which will serve as a safe route for those on bicycles to ride through the park and avoid hazards pedestrians walking by.  The final upgrade is for a refreshed park entranceway to welcome all those coming to Waterloo Park.



Today we are glad to report that the project is underway and you can look forward to seeing the changes in 2018.

Things Are Coming Together to Help You Get Together @ Waterloo Park


For those of you not familiar with Waterloo Park, it is a wonderful gathering place where everyone can spend time in the City of Waterloo.  There are playgrounds, picnic areas, sports fields and even animals in the park.  It is a great place to spend some time alone or get together with others.

 

(I will embed this video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXu2Y5a-EQw )

 

With the completion of the Light Rail Transit system and the upgrades to Waterloo Park in 2018 it is sure to be a historic year for the City of Waterloo!

Since my post, the KW Titans have been creating a lot of buzz around Kitchener Waterloo! Yesterday they spent the morning at the Kitchener Market for the Movember Kids KW event and they were a big hit! Everyone learned about their upcoming HOME OPENER, some took home prizes and lots of attendees wanted to hang out with the team’s mascot Titus The Titan.  Titus got so into the scene that he even grabbed a moustache to support Movember!

Everyone I spoke with yesterday had great energy including the players, owners and the team staff. You could say they all came to play!  They are really looking forward to making an impact this year and this weekend you have the opportunity to learn more about the team at our Movember Kids KW @ Kitchener Market event!
