Provided the rain holds off, Wednesday is Nerd Day in Downtown Timmins.
BIA summer project coordinator Emma Laiho says to put your game controller down, and come to the Urban Park, between Pine and Balsam Streets.
“We’re going to have some Pokémon that you can go around and catch.” Laiho outlines. “We have all sorts of video game-themed activities and it’s going to be a really great time.”
You’re encouraged to dress up like an old-school nerd.
“Get the big glasses that your parents had in the 80s,” Laiho advises, “and your little button-up shirts, your pen protectors, any of that kind of stuff.”
Another important accessory is tape on the nose piece of the glasses. If you’re trouble imagining that, think Young Sheldon.
