What is there to do in the Sault? The Downtown is dead/dying, the Tour Train is on its way out, the Bush Plane Museum is also dying, judging from the layoffs, and Bellevue Park, what’s there?
So what is left, the Pavilion where every Tuesday and Thursday there are bands to entertain music lovers.
The biggest thing going in the Sault is the Rotaryfest that is held in July every year and the place is packed with people.
The Solution, more music.
Over the weekend Mike Severin and his helpers held a concert similar to the concerts that used to be held in Charlebois Michigan years ago and it was a successful venture. All that has to be done now is to get the city, the musicians, and the people of this slowly dying city on board.
Where to have these concerts you ask? The Machine Shop, every block in the downtown, Algoma University front yard, Sault College, or even the dilapidated band shell at Bellevue Park are ideal sites for tourists to become aware of the annual concerts.
This whole city is slowly dying and even its residents are becoming disgruntled with the situation.
Maybe Mr. Dominic Ruscio was right in trying to get rid of the Downtown Association. It has done nothing to enhance the area since its inception years ago. All it has done is take the business people’s money from them to pay someone to do nothing.
Mike Severin has a dream, a dream that isn’t that far fetched.
