Cornwall Ontario – Summer in Cornwall means fun in the sun and plenty of deals for local shoppers.
Businesses lining Pitt Street and some of the surrounding locales will be offering savings and/or extended hours to help mark the Downtown Summer Celebration.
The celebration, which coincides with Cornwall Seaway Lions Club Ribfest, is inviting foodies of all kinds to take a tour along Pitt Street and visit some of the local shops and merchants who will be offering deals as part of the sweetest, stickiest event of the summer.
“We’re so happy to see popular events, like Ribfest, take place in beautiful Lamoureux Park,” said Downtown BIA chair Brenda Campbell. “And after they have enjoyed all the park has to offer we encourage ribbers and patrons to visit our many downtown shops and businesses this weekend, where merchants are offering special deals. This is a great opportunity to enjoy all that downtown Cornwall has to offer.”
