Organizers say 519 Day — celebrated on May 19 in reference to Windsor’s 519 area code — is a celebration of Windsor and its local businesses.

“It’s a day to say, hey, celebrate!” said Yvonne Pilon, president and CEO of WEtech Alliance. “There’s always reason to celebrate.”

To help the City of Windsor celebrate its 125th birthday, BB Branded is giving out “WIN CITY” onesies to Windsor’s May 19 newborns.

“We don’t celebrate our local companies — we can never celebrate them enough,” said Pilon. “This is just another day to just bring people together to showcase some new businesses.”

Detroit’s 16-person, pedal-powered pub on wheels, the HandleBar, will be giving away a free ride and tour of Detroit to the winner of a social media contest hosted by 519 Day organizers.

“Detroit has reached out to us,” Pilon said. “As Canadians, we’ve embraced Detroit a lot, and it’s nice to see Detroit embrace us.”

This weekend should be a big one.

“We’ve got a long weekend, the Memorial Cup, Windsor’s birthday and, in addition, we’re celebrating 519,” Pilon said. “I imagine the downtown streets will be packed.”
