Hello Summerside will be launching on 28th June, 2019.

Participants are encouraged to explore their local environment in a new and experiential way, and invited to anonymously share their thoughts, opinions and stories about what Summerside means to them. By taking part, you'll contribute to decisions made about Summerside communities.

Conversations will take the form of interactive questions. Find out what each object has to say!

How to play

All you need to chat with the Objects, is a basic mobile phone! It’s free to play (standard text messaging rates apply) and suitable for all ages. Just look out for the yellow signs across the City, which can be found in places like Downtown, Spinnakers’ Landing, Credit Union Place, Queen Elizabeth Park and along the Boardwalk.

  1. Wake up any coded piece of street furniture by texting: 902 906 9006.
  2. Text in this format: "Hello + Object + #CODE".
  3. For Example: "Hello Bench #039".

30 objects across your City, including a lighthouse, a flagpole, lamp posts, benches and trash cans will be waking up, inviting citizens to strike up playful conversations in the street!
