Art in the Park Oakville - Less Than a Month Away! Get Ready to Shine!

  Hi Everyone, Just a friendly reminder that Art in the Park Oakville is less than a month away – Monday, August 5th, from 10am to 5pm at Waterfront Heritage Park! It's time to dust off your displays, stock up on your best work, and get those sales mechanisms ready! For many artists, cash, cheques, and personal point-of-sale systems (like Square) are popular choices. Sales are the most important part of the day - be prepared! Heads up – the park has public Wi-Fi, but with a big crowd, it might be a little overwhelmed on the day. Consider having offline options for processing sales. Traffic and Parking: Here's an important update: Northbound Bronte Road is currently closed for construction. Be mindful of this when planning your arrival. You can still access the park from Bronte Road southbound, but when leaving, you'll need to use an alternate route northbound, like Jones Street or Nelson Street. The good news is the parking lots next to the fie

Witnessing the Magic: A Total Eclipse Tale from Oakville!

  Wow, Oakville! Did you step outside today and witness the magic in the sky? We just experienced a total solar eclipse, and let me tell you, it was absolutely awe-inspiring! As the moon slowly crept across the sun, the world dimmed in an otherworldly way. Birdsong quieted, replaced by a hush that seemed to hold its breath. Streetlights flickered on, confused by the sudden twilight settling in the middle of the afternoon. Then, for a glorious few minutes, the sun vanished completely.

But even the partial phases, as the moon began to cover and then uncover the sun, were mesmerizing. The whole experience was a powerful reminder of the vastness of space and the wonder of our univer
