There's a line up of local talent set to perform Saturday that's comparable to our local festival rosters.
Dawn Boudreau, the Nove Voce choir led by Robin Norman, Karl Standeven and Lecia and Paul Forster, will appear throughout the afternoon and evening at the grand opening of a new downtown coffee shop, The Daily Grind, located at 1505 Third Avenue.
It's all about giving back to the community for owner, Blossom McKinnon, who also owns a bookkeeping business.
"This is a place to relax and hang out and have a really good cup of coffee," McKinnon said.
McKinnon had a stage built specifically to provide the opportunity for local performers to showcase and develop their talents in a friendly environment.
"We're all really community oriented and we would like to see the downtown grow," said McKinnon, who thinks offering free Wi Fi will bring in the college and university students.
During the grand opening there will be a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army.
"I'm hoping we can start rebuilding the downtown core and this is a great start," McKinnon said.
The Daily Grind is open Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
