Energizing the downtown core

Day in the District

On September 16, 2017, HIP held a free community event branded Day In The District.

The family friendly event officially introduced the public to The Gaslight District and all its possibilities.

With 3 main stages, vendors, food and craft demonstrations, local artists and a selection of food and beverage trucks, one couldn’t possibly take in all the great acts.

The main stage had plenty of music and energy. Headliners included the distinctive pop sounds of Steven Page (formerly of Barenaked Ladies) and listeners were treated to the mellow musings and infectious rock rifts of Serena Ryder.

The response was overwhelming. The event helped HIP set a new and impressive condominium sales record for Waterloo Region. . All of Galt was alive during the entirety of the day.

Life At The Gaslight

Gaslight Square is HIP developments way of capturing the history and culture in Cambridge. The district features everything from fine dining and entertainment – featuring the theatre, festivals, art and music, a unique working environment and a place to call home.

My Point of View

Let’s all remember to find time in our busy lives to give back and invest in those that are coming behind us. Their creative minds are the greatest resource we have for future prosperity as a Region. Celebrate with them!
