The George Street Association — the local organization of establishment owners in the capital city’s historic entertainment hub — announced the official details of the Summer of George campaign, which includes exciting, prize-laden events.
Supported by the City of St. John’s and a list of committed sponsors, the association has announced a variety of events starting as early as June 30th.
“We appreciate all of the members, Board, sponsors, and community partners who provided their time and effort into ensuring that we can provide these incredible events this summer,” writes Chair of the Board, Kevin English, in a release. “We look forward to seeing George Street filled with people and enjoying themselves in a safe, social, and fun environment!”
