The City of Grande Prairie is excited to hold its second annual Neighbour Day this weekend for residents to build stronger relationships and connect with those who live around them.

“Many of the Neighbourhood Associations are holding events to bring neighbours together,” says Patricia Millward, Community Recreation Coordinator. “This day is for everyone, so be sure to introduce yourself to a new neighbour or say hello to those you know already.”
There are many ways to celebrate Neighbour Day such as connecting with neighbours though picnics in the park; pop up lemonade stands; helping with fall yard clean up and more!
