Good times at the 2015 Brampton New Year’s Levee

Did some say free food, good music and great people?!

This past was the 2015 Brampton New Year’s Levee. Normally the event takes on January 1st of each year, however, this year the Levee was pushed back to January 10th to give city hall staff extra time with family and friends.

The event this year was an absolute blast! Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey and her city council met and chatted with the dozens and dozens of local residents who came out. There were free treats and coffee and live music. Take a look at the short video and a few photos.

The weekly history lesson: Taking a look at the Rose Theatre

Brampton has many jewels and gems to see and visit. One of the gems in Brampton is the Rose Theatre, a fantastic performing arts complex. This awesome theatre is located in Brampton’s beautiful downtown core. It has a main performance hall that can seat up to 880 people, but there also is a smaller hall that can seat up to 160 people. These performance halls are used for many different purposes such as musical theatre, live theatre, social events, dance performances and different kinds of concerts.

The Rose Theatre was built to be a major tourism destination in the Flower City, and it was hoped that it could bring in new business to local Brampton stores and restaurants. In February 2006, the name of the theatre was announced as the Rose Theatre. On September 29, 2006, the theatre had its grand opening with Canadian jazz pianist and singer, Diana Krall, who put on a terrific performance. Over the years, the theatre has attracted many visitors annually who spend thousands of dollars.

Here is the website for the theatre and a 2007 article on the theatre. Make sure to come check out a show at this amazing state-of-the-art theatre!

A still photo montage of the 2014 Brampton Santa Parade.

The Brampton Santa Claus Parade was absolutely fantastic this year. There was so much to see and it is always great seeing so many people turn out for the event – or any event in Brampton, for that matter. The following is a short still photo montage of the parade with some nice Christmas music. Enjoy!

These fine folks knew calling Sandy was the right thing to do!

For me, one of the best (and most satisfying) things about working in real estate is knowing when I helped good people find great places to live. It’s a wonderful feeling when someone or a couple asks me to help them locate a home and then how happy they are when we find the right place. Here are a few client testimonial videos! Call Sandy and Start Packin’!

Now that is what I call a great Santa Claus Parade!

I love it when the Brampton community gets together for a special event and this past weekend was a very special, very Christmasy event! It was the annual Brampton Santa Claus Parade. Every year Brampton residents are treated to some fantastic floats, cool characters, fun tunes and some terrific entertainment. This year, dozens and dozens my fellow Bramptonians and I enjoyed one heck of a great parade. Need proof? Take a look at this short video and some photos! Merry Christmas! Ho-ho-ho!
