Work Hard, Play Hard: Party with a Purpose

UNBSJ

Stephany Peterson, submitted from Telegraph-Journal, weekly Infusion column Our city has a long history of demonstrating the maxim ‘work hard, play hard’. Tireless efforts to surpass expectations and juggle roles as partners, parents, children, students, professionals, friends, neighbours, volunteers, and citizens, can be exhausting. We must be mindful that this requires a counterbalance of play: simply because play is expendable

Events

FOUR KEY EVENTS:

Party with a Purpose: Each was unique, with its own theme and that is what dictated where it was held. While some were in bars, others were in non-traditional spaces. For instance a Party with a Purpose could be tied to a beach clean-up.

Faces of Fusion: A fun night out, held the first two years at the Union Club. Tickets were around $20/$25 and the only stipulation was you couldn’t sit with someone you knew. It was about people getting out and meeting new faces.

Canada Day Countdown: Now an established, annual event hosted by Market Square, it began as a Fusion event. Before that Canada Day was boring in Saint John – a weird flea market on King’s Square (still there) and fireworks at night. Fusion got sponsors, booked indie bands and turned it into a party – starting the night before. It created an event destination in Saint John and built pride.

Harvesting the Arts Festival: A showcase for young artists that draws people into King’s Square and the Uptown on the weekend.
