Peterborough, ON – A “100 Days Out” celebration will take place on Monday, May 2, 2022 to ramp up the start of the Peterborough 2022 Ontario 55+ Summer Games in August. The event will generate momentum and build excitement for the Games, which take place August 9 to 11 throughout the City and County of Peterborough, as well as promote a call for volunteers who would like to support the Games.

 "The Downtown Business Improvement Area is thrilled to be partnering with the City of Peterborough for the Ontario 55+ Summer Games”, said Terry Guiel. “Our historically charming downtown is filled with the kind of unique dining and shopping experiences that the visiting athletes will most certainly enjoy. We can't wait to show off our entertainment district and the vibrant patios this summer. Of course, we are looking forward to the games bringing a much-needed economic boost to our downtown businesses."
