Ranging from a skate board jam, a bike show and a poetry slam to a council cook-off and even an amazing race, kids and teens    across the two municipalities were celebrated with fun activities created by youth for youth.

Since 1995 Youth Week  has been held across the provincial during the first week of May to help build connections between young people and their communities.
