The festivals are over, but the city is hoping Churchill Square will remain the place to be for Edmontonians looking for a good time over the lunch hour.

A variety of arts and music, children’s activities, fitness classes, demonstrations, and, of course, food will be offered to weekday square visitors from about 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. until mid-October.

“It’s a continuation of the fun, the food, entertainment and activity on the square,” said Rob Marchak, project co-ordinator for Churchill Square. “We’re really looking at expanding this into the after-work hours, evenings and especially into the weekends.”

Marchak said the city has more plans for winter activities in the square once Grey Cup festivities are finished in November. The city is spending about $60,000 on all the activities going on in the square.

“What we really need to do now is look at different operating models for the square and operating budgets for the square as we move forward,” he said.

The idea of free entertainment and activities for visitors of all ages came from public consultation earlier this year.
