Mayor’s Walk and Windsor’s 131st Birthday Celebration
The City of Windsor will mark the 131st anniversary of incorporation for the municipality. Everyone is invited to a free community event packed with fun for the entire family.
The day will begin with the Annual Mayor’s Walk at 10:00 a.m. Attendees are asked to gather at Assumption Park North on the waterfront to warm up with the City’s department of Parks, Recreation & Culture, and Facilities. Mayor Drew Dilkens, members of Windsor City Council and special guests will be on hand for the event kick-off. Representatives of the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County will be present and handing out country flags representing the homelands of some of Windsor’s diverse community members. The Mayor’s Walk will proceed along the waterfront from Assumption Park North to Dieppe Gardens and will feature performances along the route.
The walk will pause at the base of the Great Canadian Flag for the singing of our national anthem before proceeding through Dieppe Gardens and up towards the Vision Corridor adjacent to Adventure Bay Family Water Park presented by WFCU Credit Union and the Chimczuk Museum and Art Windsor-Essex (AWE) building.
Then, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at the Vision Corridor (401 Riverside Drive West), Mayor Dilkens will welcome the community to the annual birthday party, which will include free birthday hotdogs and cupcakes, while supplies last; entertainment on the ShowMobile outdoor stage; and activities, crafts, face-painting, games and displays in and around the park. Enjoy free admission to the Chimczuk Museum and Art Windsor-Essex (AWE), all in celebration of Windsor’s birthday.
