We’re bringing you this week’s edition of Friday Five one day early to help you plan for Midnight Madness. Taking place on July 19 from 6 p.m. to midnight throughout Downtown Oakville, Midnight Madness will feature music, entertainment, food, amazing sales and more from more than 100 businesses like:
Yellow Door Studio
Yellow Door Studio knows how to party! Beyond their luxurious manicures and pedicures, this chic salon also offers lattes, cocktails and a beautiful event space for your next work or social function. Come check out everything they have to offer during Midnight Madness, where they’ll be hosting a live band (Guilty 5), a licenced outdoor patio and readings from Tarot Lori (who we stopped in to see last Thursday during one of her regular readings at Yellow Door).
Along with drinks, live music and fortune-telling, you can enjoy food and activities from neighbouring businesses like Bucca di Baco, 151 Social, Schilling’s and Nova Health Club, plus live performances from the Fire Guy. It might be in the middle of the construction zone, but Thomas Street will be buzzing this Midnight Madness so be sure to check it out!
The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro
If you’re looking for street food that you can enjoy on the go, this popular burger joint is one of several restaurants that will be setting up a pop-up food stand for Midnight Madness (click here for a full list). They’ll be serving up deep fried bacon, bacon-wrapped tater tots and onion rings at Lakeshore and Trafalgar. If you want to sit down to fully savour all that deep fried deliciousness, stop by their restaurant at 149 Lakeshore Road East.
If you’ve ever wondered what a high-intensity spin class at this boutique fitness studio is like, stop by Lululemon (291 Lakeshore Road East), where SPINCO instructors will be doing a live demo outside. If watching a live spin class while shopping for new workout gear doesn’t motivate you to get fit, then maybe this will: take a picture with the SPINCO crew and post it on Instagram (make sure to tag @spincooakville and @lululemon) for your chance to win two weeks unlimited at SPINCO plus Lululemon merch!
Duran Place for Kids
This kid’s play space is bringing their giant blocks to one of our four Kid Zones. Located in the parking lot behind 276 Lakeshore Road East, this Kid Zone is sponsored by Chervin Kitchens and will also feature an inflatable obstacle course. Click here for a full list of Kid Zones and activities.
Boleo Dance Studio
It wouldn’t be a party without a little dancing. Hone your salsa skills with Boleo Dance Studios on North Trafalgar – don’t be shy! Beginners are not only welcome, but encouraged to join in on the fun. With the pros from Boleo on hand to teach you how to move, you’ll be dancing up a storm in no time.
