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.

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.

Saint John Energy and Uptown Saint John Inc. – A Partnership to Create Uptown Holiday Lighting

Press Release
November 25, 2019

 

 

Saint John Energy and Uptown Saint John Inc. a partnership to create Uptown Holiday Lighting

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks…. dressed in holiday style in the air there’s a feeling of Christmas”

 

Uptown is certainly dressed in holiday style and one might say the magic happens overnight.  Actually, it does. The beautiful, sparkling holiday lighting is due to the very appreciated efforts of Saint John Energy.  “The blue and white snowflakes are a joint project with some investment coming from both organizations,” says Nancy Tissington, Executive Director of Uptown Saint John Inc.

 

SJ Energy provides all of the installation for the uptown seasonal lighting and have been housing and managing the holiday lights infrastructure for the past number of years. “The excitement is in the air and we are thrilled to provide this to the community every year,” says Jessica DeLong, SJ Energy – Manager, Stakeholder Relations.

 

This year, USJI has started investing in Phase I of a new ‘tree wrapping’ initiative.  These brilliantly lit trees will remain shining throughout the year. The future phases will see expansion to other trees on King Street and Prince William Street.  Also, new this year – a glowing family of carollers installed on the 2nd level of the historic bandstand in King’s Square.  It truly is the most magical time of the year in Uptown Saint John, with all of the sparkling lights lending a memorable ambiance to this most festive and joyous season.
