There will be a Kids Corner set up in the amphitheatre at Springer Market Square, where people can take pictures in the area adorned with selfie walls and chalk art stickers. Along with the Kids Corner, the city also offers a self-guided arts walk along the waterfront from Doug Fluhrer Park to Lake Ontario Park.
