Sundays in the Park is returning this year to Muskoseepi Park, with the first event happening on Aug. 7.
The three weekend events are free to people of all ages.
“We have had a lot of positive feedback; a lot of people are really just excited to be able to join in these events again,” said Stacey Batt, city event and volunteer co-ordinator.
“People are excited to do things.”
The first Sunday in the Park on Aug. 7 will be Western Dance from 1 to 3 p.m at the amphitheatre in Muskoseepi Park.
On Aug. 21, a yoga class will be offered from 1 to 3 p.m., and on Aug. 28, the Centre for Creative Arts will be offering a soapstone craving class at 1 and 2:30 p.m.
All the Sunday in the Park events are free to attend, with only the Aug. 28 event requiring registration.
Batt says for the Yoga and western dance, people can drop in as they please between the allotted time.
“We're excited for people to come down to the park and enjoy these free activities and enjoy the city park and the hopefully nice Sundays that are to come,” she said.
Batt says the city brought back Sundays in the Park last year after a hiatus of many years, since about 2013, she believes. The event did allow for more socially distanced possibilities during the pandemic.
“The past couple of years, we haven't been able to have as many large events as we've been hoping to or as many gatherings as we've been wanting to, so we're really excited to see everyone's faces in public to join in in a variety of different activities.”
