Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend

Posted on Wednesday October 07, 2020

As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, the City of Cambridge wants to remind the community to keep safety top of mind. With the second wave of the pandemic underway, residents are encouraged to keep their celebrations to small groups or to pursue virtual options.

“It’s a big ask but we know the COVID-19 virus is spreading and the numbers are increasing," said Mayor Kathryn McGarry. “Keep your celebrations small, with the people in your household. Masks and physical distancing with anyone else help keep everyone safe. We have to act collectively to slow the spread and to prevent significant closures and shutdowns. This weekend, let’s celebrate responsibly and be thankful for what we have and for those who are working so hard to protect our community.”

The Cambridge Centre for the Arts has put together some creative ideas for connecting with the family over video to celebrate the holiday virtually. Visit www.cambridge.ca/recfromhome for details and more at-home activities.

For the perfect Thanksgiving meal, visit the Cambridge Farmer’s Market on Saturday, Oct. 10 to find everything you need. From roasts, hams and turkeys to vegetables, homemade pies and flowers, the market is a one-stop-shop for all the Thanksgiving essentials. Order ahead of time through the market’s online shop and have your items waiting for you to pick up. 

The 2020 Halloween/Fall projection show will be running at the Old Post Office Saturday and Sunday night. For program times and details, visit www.cambridge.ca/projectionshow. Pandemic guidelines and gathering limits are in effect.

Cambridge City Hall and some City facilities will be closed for the long weekend. To see what is open and closed over the holiday weekend, visit www.cambridge.ca/publicnotices.
