Celebrating the Power of Public Works

Entertainment and activities | May 15, 2018

Join us for National Public Works Week at Family Fun Day on May 26
We can often take our roads, traffic and street lights for granted. For one day each year you have the chance to learn what it takes to keep City services operating smoothly. On May 26, come to Mississauga Celebration Square to celebrate National Public Works Week – Family Fun Day.

Members of the Road Safety Committee will be onsite to kick off their Please Slow Down campaign. Drop by, get your free lawn sign and support safe driving in your neighbourhood.
