Waterfront Festival parking, shuttle bus, info for this year's MWF (Mississauga Waterfront Festival) http://snapshot-travel-blog.blogspot.com/2010/06/waterfront-festival-mississauga-parking.html
###It's time again for Mississauga's Waterfront Festival (June 2008) held in Port Credit, on the shores of Lake Ontario. The main attractions and sales booths are in Memorial Park. Have a look at the map to get your bearings:

This year the Waterfront Festival promises to be the very best EVER! I for one intend to go see Mississauga's own Suzie McNeil (of Rock Star INXS and We Will Rock You) on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m.
A weekend pass costs $15 for adults, and $10 for over 65s and 10 and unders, and in my mind, it's well worth it. A family of four can have a whole lot of fun for $50 - Dora the Explorer, Matthew Good, Colin James, 'Miss Spider' (whoever/whatever she is) and many more.
The full program is posted at www.mississaugawaterfrontfestival.com
or call 905-891-0002 for info. Tickets are available at participating Shoppers Drug Marts, online at the site, or at the gate.
Parking is always a problem on summer weekends in Port Credit, but there are FREE shuttle buses from the Square One - City Centre area, South Common Mall and Erin Mills Town Centre. If you are coming on the GO train, get off at Port Credit (blue mark on map) and walk about 4 blocks.
There are lots of good restaurants and pubs, the site itself is licenced during certain hours, there's a great ice cream shop just east of the bridge / park, and the weather should be perfect! (NoRainNoRainNoRain, Pleasepleaseplease!)
Events run morning, afternoon and well into the evening - you could spend the weekend and not be bored. And best of all, the Waterfront Festival is on the Lakeshore at the Credit River -- what a fabulous location!
