Party in the LANES August Edition Returns on Friday, August 23!

Brampton, August 23, 2019 – The Downtown Brampton BIA (Business Improvement Area) is pleased to present Party in the LANES on Friday, August 23.

Party in the LANES takes over McArter Lane, Vivian Lane, George St. South and Garden Square for an evening of excitement running from 6-11 p.m. Brampton’s Downtown laneways transform into festive street parties featuring live music, salsa lessons, belly dancing, local vendors and more. The tribute band, Epic Eagles, plays Garden Square bringing you back to the golden days of the legendary band Eagles.

Indie Rock Artist Stacey Renee takes over the stage in McArter Lane with her unique and edgy, soulful style. Stacey Renee has opened for acts as diverse as The Trews and Suzie McNeil and was featured on Much Music’s television show “disBand.” Dress People is presenting a Fashion Show, and Dancercise will perform throughout the night.

George St. South goes Latin with Gonzalo Olea from Salsa Café at Segovia Coffee leading salsa lessons, and Bachata Swing performs all night. Natalie Zara is back to enthrall with her Egyptian-style and Fusion belly dance.

Vivian Lane transforms into our Kids Lane and features a free PhotoboothTO compliments of our local businesses. Children’s crafts, free face painting and balloon twisting, as well as chalk activities plus a bubble station sponsored by Dolcezza Cakes,  will keep the kids entertained. Boomer, the Brampton Beast mascot, is returning for another visit and Brampton Fire will make an appearance.

Each laneway features local downtown pop-up vendors offering a variety of delicious food and unique products. Many of our businesses will be open late and offering specials. Follow along on social media (#PITL) to participate in our  PITL flash contests.

Party in the LANES has something for everyone to enjoy, so bring your dancing shoes, appetites, and shopping excitement to Downtown Brampton on August 23! This event is brought to you by Downtown Brampton businesses and the City of Brampton.
