Main Street: At the Heart of the Community

This year's Heritage Week runs from February 16 to February 22, 2015.  The national theme "Main Street: At the Heart of the Community" celebrates the social and economic history that makes a community's downtown or Main Street, an integral part of a community's past, a vibrant part of the present, and a significant resource to preserve and promote for the future.  

Heritage Canada has a great list of suggested activities to celebrate Heritage Week in your community.
