Weekend Wrap-Up, August 7-9, 2020

Hey there, did you miss us? We’ve missed you tons. Urban Parent is pleased to bring your family back into the swing of things with all the tips on affordable family entertainment and adventure in HRM. So, tune in every week for the good-as-new yet slightly revised (because isn’t everything?) Urban Parent Weekend Wrap-Up.

This week, we’ve got babies making music (free); rediscovering the Discovery Centre (it’s open!!); vegetable bundles (also free); and jazz, Jazz, JAZZ (yes, it is too).

1 – Have you ever heard of Kindermusik? Would your family, or a family you know be interested in trying out the Kindermusik program if it was being offered near you? Well, here’s the little one’s big chance! As a part of teacher training, Laura Scaravelli is completing a four-week supervised Kindermusik class for her practicum this fall. The program will be offered to lucky babies, ages 0-12 months. Give her a shout if you’re interested. Email:

2 – Rediscovering! The Discovery Centre is excited to open Thursday to Sunday, 9-12 and 1-4. Tickets can be purchased online so members and visitors can pre-register in advance. Pre-registration and changes to their hours to ensure safety of their guests and the squeaky cleanliness of the Centre.

3 – Fairview/Clayton Park Square Roots has teamed up with Patricia Arab, MLA Fairview Clayton Park, Sally Covert, Geoff Regan and Masud Morshed to offer free vegetable bundles to residents in need. Bundles will be 7-10 lbs based on the selection of produce that week.
