Friday Five: Lakeside Community Events

Take advantage of Downtown Oakville’s beautiful waterfront and community events during the last few weeks of summer.

Downtown Oakville Waterfront 

Downtown Oakville is certainly known for its vibrant shopping and cultural district but did you know it has amazing waterfront walkways just a few blocks south of Lakeshore Road. Grab a coffee and explore the trails during the last few weeks of summer.

Soontorn Bahn Thai – 210 Lakeshore Rd E. 

Looking for a spot to pick up lunch before you head down to the waterfront? Bahn Thai (located in Towne Square) is a great (and delicious) option! You can pick up their lunch special (soup, spring roll, and main dish) for only $13.95 + tax and if eating by the waterfront isn’t your thing then you can grab a seat on their new patio!

TD Songs of Summer Series Ft. Descendants of Dunn – Friday, August 23 7 -9 P.M. 

Celebrate Friday with live music in Towne Square featuring Descendants of Dunn for the TD Songs of Summer Series. Some seating is provided but we do suggest you bring your own lawn chair. Special thanks to TD, Ontario Government, Bell, Merriam Music, and the businesses of downtown Oakville for sponsoring this event!
