Howick Township Celebrates 160 Years!
Each year the community of Howick joins together to celebrates the Township’s anniversary. This year celebrates 160 proud years, and will be held Friday, July 29th to Sunday, July 30th 2016. The festivities attract the attention of many neighbouring communities—and are so busy that the free shuttles are the best way to get to the events. Shuttles run from 6pm to 2am on Friday, 9am to 2am on Saturday, and 9am to 1am on Sunday.
Support Your Local Businesses
Many Howick businesses have been in the community for multiple generations, and will be hosting and sponsoring special events throughout the weekend. There is truly something for the entire family—for kids, teens, and adults of all ages. One of the largest attractions are the Friday night euchre tournament at 7:30pm, the Saturday pet parade at 10:15am, and the Sunday fireworks at 10pm. Also check out the nightly dinner specials—Chicken Wings on Friday, Pork on Saturday, and steak BBQ on Sunday.
Don’t Forget Your Gold And Green
Gold and green are the community colors, so expect to see decorations and event attendees showing their community spirit.
The Anniversary Committee has been working diligently since 2015, so it’s a can’t miss event! To see the full schedule head to http://howick.ca/howick-160-information
