Labour Day 2021 planning is upon us. We have a basic structure that is likely similar to last year in order to respect the potential social distancing but depending on how things open up.
Anticipate the following will happen:
CARAVAN: Last year was City Hall to the Starlite Drive-In queueing up at 10:30 and leaving at 11am. It may be that again, but things haven't been finalized yet. We know we definitely cannot march in any numbers. The route will follow the same path we established last year, from City Hall down Main Street, continuing into the East End where Main becomes Queenston and turning right on Centennial Parkway up the mountain.
We plan on having an articulated bus for those who do not have vehicles. Last year the bus joined the caravan at City Hall at 10:30 a.m. and returned at 2 p.m.. Hopefully, this year we will be able to do more ride sharing should social distancing parameters permit.
ALL ALLIES, FRIENDS OF LABOUR, AND COALITION PARTNERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN!
TAILGATE: Last year we had a tailgate party from 11:30-2:00pm at the Starlite Drive-In. Our venue will likely be the same as it allows for cars on-site and is flexible with our ability to self-regulate group sizes. Also, any public site won't take bookings during the pandemic, so we have to use a privately-owned site.
If possible, we are considering if it will be able to do...
FOOD and DRINKS: Last year we encouraged people to bring their own picnic lunch. We'll see how restrictions impact our ability to provide a food and beverage option this year.
LIVE ENTERTAINMENT: We're looking at options to provide live entertainment at a space like the Star-lite. There will be further updates on this as we lock people in.
While we don't have all the details yet, we did want to let people know that an event is planned, save the date and encourage your friends, family, Sisters, Brothers, and Comrades to make plans to join us!
