On November 30th, Riverside BIA and our co-sponsors, Dianna Kennedy RE/MAX Hallmark Realty & Baird MacGregor Insurance Brokers LP, will be hosting the annual Light Up Riverside holiday event. Light Up Riverside is a free community event that encourages everyone to come out and celebrate the holiday season with live music, photos with Santa, treats and lots of beautiful lights!
This year’s Light Up Riverside event will again take place from 5-7pm at the Mustard Seed Courtyard of Fontbonne Ministries (791 Queen Street E).
Dianna Kennedy has been an active co-sponsor of this annual event since 2017, and we are so excited to have her lend her energy and support again this year! Light Up Riverside takes place beside Dianna’s RE/MAX Hallmark Realty office.
Dianna has been a part of the Riverside community for quite some time, with 20+ years of experience in the area’s real estate, Dianna has strong ties to the community, and especially with the Riverside BIA since becoming a member of the BIA Board of Directors in 2019. We sat down to catch up with Dianna and chat about this year’s Light Up Riverside and her involvement in the Riverside community.
What are you most looking forward to for this year’s Light Up Riverside event?
This year I’m very excited to be doing a gift basket giveaway with a value of up to $200! Entry to the draw will be free, however, I’m encouraging donations for our amazing event hosts Mustard Seed, Fontbonne Ministries. I love Light Up Riverside because it’s a fun event for people to enjoy, meet others in the community, and it is a great way to kick off the holiday season.
What does this event mean to you and your business?
This event is really important to me because it gives me an opportunity to get outside and spend a fun time with the people of this amazing community!
What is your favourite part of the holiday season?
The holidays are great because it gives people the opportunity to get together with people we don’t see as often as we would like and to spend time with friends and family.
What are some of your favourite things to do in Riverside?
The list is endless. There are so many fun things to do in Riverside, one thing I enjoy doing is going for dinner at The Broadview Hotel and hanging out at their rooftop patio. Riverside is great because there are always so many festivals and events that take place. I really enjoy the Riverside Eats & Beats Streetfest and the diversity of the neighbourhood.
Meet Dianna at Light Up Riverside! Get all the details and let us know you’re coming!
A BIG thank you to our 2019 Light Up Riverside co-sponsors, Baird MacGregor Insurance Brokers LP and Dianna Kennedy RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd, and to Fontbonne Ministries for hosting again in the Mustard Seed Courtyard.
