The first annual event to attract all types of families was held at the Jack Purcell Community Center on Elgin Street, on February 21. Organizers attracted all types of families to the free, all-day event: traditional families, same-sex couples, singles living together, multi-generational groups. This is the first Rainbow family day since Canada declared same-sex marriage legal in 2005. The event featured a pancake breakfast, a family swim and family skate, performances, a Zumba class, a youth café and many more activities.
