The River District comes alive in the spring. Specially curated floral arrangements are hung along the sidewalks. Shop doors are often left open as if to say welcome. Spring cleaning takes place to wash away any remnants of winter's grey allowing for the vibrant energy of the River District to shine through. Local shops begin to put up their seasonal patios for visitors to spend time and absorb everything the River District has to offer. Discover the beauty of the Sydenham River as the trees begin to bud. Take advantage of ever-increasing temperatures and shake off the winter blues by spending hours exploring the diverse gifts the River District has to offer.
