Moreover, an augmented reality experience will provide a modern twist to the event, inviting visitors to engage with the city’s heritage in an interactive and immersive way.

More than just a weekend event, Summer on the Square aims to foster dialogue, engagement, and creativity among attendees, facilitating learning and connection-building for a brighter future.
