Concord CityPlace, a master-planned high-rise community by developer Concord Adex, continues to see new growth, new residents and most importantly, new levels of community spirit and involvement. As this collection of new high-rise towers continues to gel into a full-fledged neighbourhood, CityPlace's developers and residents have come together yet again to celebrate a growing community. After last year's successful inaugural run at Canoe Landing Park, Cityfest returned to Concord CityPlace this past weekend for its second year, and residents as well as passerby were treated to food, drink, and live music in the 20-acre Canoe Landing Park.
The park was transformed into an event space on Saturday August 23rd from 4 to 10pm, with plenty to eat and drink, as well as performances by eight artists from around the region, including headliner and international DJ/producer Glenn Morrison.
Along with the contributions by developer Concord Adex, several volunteers and local businesses pitched in to help make the event happen, including sponsors Molson Canadian and local bar/restaurant Hunters Landing, who provided the beer garden and food respectively.
Cityfest also featured art exhibits, fitness activities, and a community corner aimed at connecting attendees with community organizations such as the Canadian Cancer Society, The CityPlace Residents Association, and the local library among others.
We look forward to the return of Cityfest in 2015, as well as watching the continued maturing of the Concord CityPlace community.
