June 3rd Kinbridge Community Association was able to host an unforgettable BBQ and Bike Rode in honour of Neighbourhood Day and Cambridge 50th year anniversary. The event truly embodied the spirit of Kinbridge, bringing together community members of all ages. Children bounced in the bouncy castle, while parents enjoyed cold refreshments and indulged in cotton candy treats. The lively atmosphere was undeniable. Families gathered to enjoy an assortment of hotdogs and hamburgers, including halal and vegetarian options. This joyous scene of fun, food, a bike rodeo, sports, and live entertainment were a treat for the whole community a great way for Kinbridge to engage community and build belonging.

Collaborating with our Newcomer team, we attracted a turnout of 480 community members throughout the day. As the first major event of the summer the community came riding in.

The air was filled with live music at both locations, with local talent Chad Mac and Naseem Gasgoos delivering engaging music at Churchill, and Levant Canada performing a crowd-pleasing middle eastern dance at Willard Park. The community was invited to join in, experiencing the joy of dancing together and leading neighbours. At some point nearing the end of the event you could see spontaneous dancing break out!

Throughout the event, our wonderful partners extended their warmth and support to the community. Preston Heights, Silver Heights, Greenway Chaplin, Rhythm and Blues Cambridge, Cambridge Career Connections, Children Youth Planning Table, CAWA KW, Mon Avenir, and Association Francophone de KW engaged attendees in conversations, offered treats, and shared valuable information.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to every one of our partners, including Gibson’s No Frills, McDonald’s located on 400 Main Street, Oma Fresh Food and the amazing individuals Pat, Mary, Tracy, Shawn, June, Spencer, Diane, Ken, Chris, Brooke, Hilda, Sherrie, Mark, and Lauren. Your provision for refreshments and condiments and food kept us well fed and cool. Thank you to our partners and community members for spending your Saturday with us!

We want to express our sincere appreciation to all who joined us for this beautiful June BBQ. Your presence and support made the event a resounding success. Together, we celebrated the vibrant spirit of our community, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime. See you next year!
