- 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.
