Events and Neighbourhood Festivals in NDG
Halloween Decorating of the Melrose Tunnel: A now-annual event bringing kids together to create Halloween decorations from recycled materials and decorate the Melrose Tunnel, transforming it into a haunted space. Partners – EcoQuatier, Cheap Art Collective, St. Raymond residents Association, Etoile-Filante primary school, Arrondissement CDN-NDG
Fête de Quartier Fielding-Walkley: a joint project of residents and many different community organisations. Organized a fun event with free activities so that residents could learn about the many organisations working in the neighbourhood and their services. Held at École Les-Enfants-du-Monde.
In September 2014, for the second year, the Council participated in Park(ing) Day. Part of a global movement for sustainability in city neighbourhoods, this event brought a new tradition into the vibrant cultural life of our local community.
This year the Council worked in collaboration with Transition NDG, the NDG Cyclist & Pedestrian Association, Cycle Alimentaire, and was supported by the Borough of CDN-NDG. We transformed several parking spaces in central NDG into a park filled with community activities. The event attracted over 100 residents.
