The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - JEN­NIFER MOORE Three ral­lies in sup­port of Black or­ga­ni­za­tions

Hello week­end. Here you are, all dolled up with nowhere to go.

It would be sad to spend the whole week­end in­doors. En­vi­ron­ment Canada is promis­ing us mild tem­per­a­tures and sun­shine. The day­time highs are ex­pected to reach 17 to 20 C and the lows 7 to 10. Be sure to wear your sun­screen and a hat to help with the days full of sunny skies.

Keep in mind, the Lin­coln Alexan­der Park­way is closed for main­te­nance this week­end. Start­ing Fri­day at 1 p.m., the west­bound Linc from Up­per Red Hill Val­ley Park­way to Golf Links Road is closed un­til late Sun­day night. Re­mem­ber also to so­cial dis­tance whether you head out to a rally, en­joy the drive-in or stay in for a con­cert. It’s up to us to keep each other safe from COVID-19.

Check out these four things hap­pen­ing in the Hamil­ton area this week­end:


in Hamil­ton will be held on Satur­day af­ter­noon. The first rally will take place at Gore Park from 1 to 5 p.m. The sec­ond “peace­ful protest” is set for 2 p.m. at Dun­durn Park, with par­tic­i­pants march­ing to city hall, ac­cord­ing to or­ga­nizer Amani Wil­liams. All those par­tic­i­pat­ing are asked to wear masks and bring signs. A sol­i­dar­ity march is set to take place in Wa­ter­down at 2 p.m. in Me­mo­rial Park.


Burling­ton’s Walk Off The Earth and the Bare­naked Ladies are fea­tured on Satur­day’s episode of “Bud Stage At Home.” Stream or watch the con­cert, which will start at 8 p.m. It can be seen live on Ci­tytv; on­line at https://bit.ly/Ci­tyTVBudS­tageAtHome. This con­cert is part of the four-part #BudS­tageAtHome series.


Stoney Creek’s Starlite Drive-in is open with three screens run­ning from Fri­day to Thurs­day. Tick­ets are only avail­able on­line. Visit pre­mierthe­atres.ca/starlite. The movies are a lit­tle older and you will need to bring your own pop­corn. The wash­rooms are open. At­ten­dees are re­quired to re­main in their ve­hi­cle. No open seat­ing — like in the bed of a pickup truck — is al­lowed and the chil­dren’s play­ground is closed.


Jump in on this fan­tas­tic fundraiser for Hamil­ton’s In­ter­val House. Or­der the sug­gested six-pack to­day so you are ready for a vir­tual wine tast­ing be­ing held on Thurs­day, June 25, at 8 p.m., at Pearl Moris­sette Win­ery in Jor­dan. A por­tion of the pro­ceeds from the wine pack­ages pur­chased go to In­ter­val House. It’s sim­ple — or­der the sug­gested six-pack, then log on to the Zoom event for a tast­ing of the wines, where you can ask ques­tions and learn from the Pearl Moris­sette wine­maker. Visit in­ter­val­house­hamil­ton.org for more in­for­ma­tion.
