Main Street, At the Heart of the Community
“Main Street, King Street, Queen Street, Water Street, Broadway – whatever their name, Main Streets and traditional downtowns are at the heart of communities big and small across British Columbia. Centres of commerce, civic institutions, community commemoration and events, Main Streets embody the history and evolution of a community. Today many communities are leveraging the heritage of their downtowns as assets to stimulate tourism, attract new residents, provide affordable housing, and encourage investment by creating affordable space for smaller businesses and start-ups, as well as authentic retail experiences.” Heritage BC
The finale of Comox Valley heritage week is the Cumberland Heritage Fair on Saturday, February 21st.
