Celebrate National Public Works Week at Family Fun Day on May 27

Keeping Mississauga moving each day takes a lot of people, technology and equipment. National Public Works Week (NPWW) Family Fun Day is a celebration of that daily work that goes on behind the scenes. Join us on Saturday, May 27 at Mississauga Celebration Square for just the right amount of learning and fun.

This year ArtWorkX – an exhibit that merges art with infrastructure, headlines our NPWW activities. Artists will transform city infrastructure into art and children can help create an environmentally-themed art piece.
