It all starts with finding your ideal parking spot downtown with a little help from the DSBIA. Click here to view free and paid parking options (you can pay from your phone) and remember, parking is free after 6 p.m. on weekdays and all weekend long.
Now that you are in the heart of the action, here is what you can explore.
Instagramable Moments Tour: November 19 – December 23
More than 20 businesses are participating in this year’s Instagramable moments tour. Simply stroll the street, take photos, use the hashtag #MerryInSudbury and post.
Want a chance to win a $500 shopping spree and help a local business win $250? All you have to do is tag the shops you like in your pic along with your hashtag. As you stroll and snap, you will discover how many wonderful boutique and local shops power our downtown core.
They enjoy your support and you will love the deals and unique finds.
