The Town of Amherstburg is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, marking her 70th anniversary on the Throne on May 21st weekend.

Downtown Amherstburg will be filled with all things British! A tree-planting ceremony in King’s Navy Yard Park with a special visit from the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, ate planned as a kick-off to the Open Air Weekends.

A free concert in the park with Beatles tribute band The Liverpool 4, a Queen’s scavenger hunt, a fascinator contest and other “royal” activities add to the fun!

“As the Crown’s representative in Ontario, the Lieutenant Governor promotes a strong, positive civic community, and Amherstburg is just that. We are delighted to host her honour,” said Mayor Aldo DiCarlo.
