This Weekend in Cambridge: May 1 – May 3

Can you believe it?  It's MAY!  That means summer is just around the corner and there will be LOTS of exciting things happening in Cambridge over the next couple of months!  What's happening this weekend you ask?  Here's some things to do...

FRIDAY MAY 1, 2015

Friday Night Art LIVE! At Idea Exchange Queen's Square.  This is the launch of their newest art exhibition Making Otherwise.  They are presenting the work of six Canadian artists who merge the material and conceptual approaches of craft and art through various methods. Drawing on their fluency in a variety of methods, they think through materials, forms and ideas to make things differently or “otherwise”.  Should be a great night as there will be nibblies from The Kiwi and a cash bar!  Admission is FREE so check it out and meet some great locals!

If you're driving past GCI you'll notice that Relay for Life is happening from 7pm to 7am!  That's right, 12 hours at night!  This is a celebration of survival and a tribute to the lives of loved ones lost.  They say it's 12 hours of fun, friendship and fundraising to make cancer history. So stop on by, show your support and ask about making a donation!
