Uptown Saint John ‘Meter for Change’ Donation to Harbour Lights

Uptown Saint John is happy to celebrate a donation of $483.50 to the Harbour Lights Campaign.  This money was collected from our ‘Meter For Change’ parking meter on Germain Street.  Thanks to everyone who slipped in a bit of change over the past few months – it all adds up to an impressive amount – going to an important cause.  A big thank you also goes to the Saint John Parking Commission for partnering with us on this on-going project.

Happy Holidays!

Business Improvement Association provides free salt/sand to its membership for the winter months!

Uptown Saint John Business Inc, the Business Improvement Association has placed eight Salt/Sand boxes throughout the BIA as a pilot project.  There will be no cost to the uptown membership for the sand/salt who will also receive a hand scoop for ease of use.  This is a joint effort with the sidewalk plow operators to help keep the ice manageable during the upcoming winter season.

Below is a list with the locations of the salt/sand boxes.  These sites are approved by the City of Saint John and we look forward to expanding after this initial pilot project. 

Location of bins:

Charlotte Street – In front of Keirsteads Flowers Shop

Corner of Princess and Germain St – In front of the Union Club

Coroner of Princess and Canterbury – In front of Big Tide Brewing 

Corner of Princess and Prince William – In from of Cask & Kettle Irish Pub

Prince William Street – In front of Java Moose

Prince William Street – In front of East Coast Bistro

FREE Horse-Drawn Trolley Rides – Dec 7, 14, and 21

Add to your holiday experience by a shopping day in our quaint and charming city centre.  There is nothing quite like the seasonal trimmings uptown – the lights, the shop windows and the holiday feel of the city at Christmas.

Uptown Saint John Inc. and the Saint John City Market have partnered to offer FREE Horse Drawn Trolley rides around King’s Square every Saturday in December, leading up to Christmas, between 1-3pm.  The trolley stops on King Square North – so gather the kids, bring your date, or venture out on your own to enjoy a nostalgic ride around the decked out King’s Square.

Weather permitting.
