Downtown’s Third Avenue was taken over last Saturday by the Active Living Fair.
The second-running of the fair was organized by Pop-up Prince Rupert which aims to promote the city’s core.
“We aim to revitalize downtown Prince Rupert and Third Avenue in particular. We focus on human capital retention and events like these are designed to make the city a more desirable place to live,” said Veronika Stewart, City of Prince Rupert communications manager.
Ecotrust Canada’s North Coast Innovation Lab intern Denise Gonzalez was the project coordinator for the event.
“The event is to promote more vibrancy in Prince Rupert and to support the groups that are promoting vibrancy in Prince Rupert,” Gonzalez said.
Activities included mixed martial art displays by North Coast Mixed Martial Arts, and fitness and yoga demonstrations by K2 Cycle Fitness and fantasy archery.
Stewart said the fair is one of the Redesign Prince Rupert events funded in part by the city.
