Hi Kensington Member Businesses!

We are thrilled to announce that for the month of February, we are launching a Pet Supplies Drive with AARCS. Similar to our December food drive for the Veterans Food Bank of Calgary, from Feb. 1 until Feb. 28, we are encouraging visitors to the neighbourhood to donate pet supplies to AARCS. There will be four donation hubs at the following shops along Kensington Road and 10 Street: The New Forest Shop, Pet Planet Kensington, Vine Styles and Urban Cellars. 

The BRZ will also be hosting community fire pits every Friday from 4-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. throughout the month. The Kensington Pride Banners will be going up and new lights replaced in the trees in the Plaza.

Over the weekend Feb. 11, 12 and 13, we are launching the "Can't Stop the #KensingtonLove Initiative" as a part of our Chinook Blast initiatives. On Feb. 11 from 5-8 p.m. in the Plaza area, we invite you to join us to enjoy live music from Heather Blush and Steve Hazlett sponsored by Telus, winter carnival games, complimentary coffee from Higher Ground Cafe and visits from your favourite characters like Spiderman, Belle, Cinderella and Ariel. 

On Feb. 12 from 12:30-3:30 p.m., there will be a drag queen fashion show hosted by Hire Heels YYC and Kylee Roman in the Plaza area featuring some of our local Kensington boutiques, including Splash of Fashion, Purr, Kismet, Trend Fashions and Kensington Konsignment. Visitors can enjoy a unique outdoor fashion experience and a "weenie roast," with gourmet hotdogs from EATCROW Snack Bar. 

On Feb. 13 from 12:30-3:30 p.m. in the Plaza area, there will be live music from Mitchel Gorman sponsored by Telus, winter carnival games, complimentary coffee from Higher Ground Cafe and visits from Captain America and Frozen favourites Anna, Elsa and Olaf. 

Throughout the month, don't forget to write your #kensingtonloveletters for a chance to win $1,000 in #kensingtonyyc business gift cards! Love letters can be delivered to the orange mailbox on the cast iron gate between Deville and the Kensington Pub or during the weekend February fire pits (Friday from 4-8 p.m. and Saturday/Sundays from 12-3 p.m). Entries will be accepted weekly beginning February 4 until February 28.
