Lunch on the Screens
Summer is the season to get outside and enjoy the midday sunshine at the Square. Pack a lunch or enjoy a variety of delicious food from food trucks on the Square. Programming on the screens enhances your experience with bite-sized entertainment, including animated shorts, big ideas and music – we even have an interactive jukebox!
The screens provide a great opportunity to bring the community together to cheer on their team. The large format screens, along with the amenities of Celebration Square, provide a comfortable and fun experience to watch your favourite sporting event.
Sports featured on the screens include special events such as the Olympics, major international soccer tournaments, and local playoff games for the Raptors, Blue Jays and Maple Leafs.
Here is a shot of the Minecraft night where we let the public play on the big screens. Together with Mississauga Library and the Microsoft Square One team, we were able to set up several stations for anyone from beginners to masters.
