Mississauga, September 25 (CINEWS): A large number of Mississauga residents end up simply considering it a dormitory suburb where they go to sleep. The Culture Days program is designed to get those residents out and about the city and experience all it has to offer. The fifth annual Culture Days weekend takes place September 25, 26 and 27, and will feature thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind-
the-scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, designers and other creative people in their communities across Canada.
Doors Open is a playground for the curious. It’s taking place in Mississauga this weekend on Saturday, September 26. If you have ever wanted to explore churches that you are not a member of, museums that you don’t spend enough time in or galleries that you keep meaning to check out, this day was designed for you.
This year’s theme is sport heritage. Four of the city’s sporting destinations will be featured during the one-day event. All sites are open on Saturday, September 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
