“Our city’s long-standing annual Canada Day celebration down at the lake is a great way to spend a summer day with family and friends,” said councillor Derek Giberson, Vice-Chair of the Community Services Committee. “I have great memories of attending with friends over 20 years ago and I look forward to seeing the community there again this year.”
The birthday celebration will also feature displays from community partners, local food vendors, a carnival, historical village and more.
A firework show, presented by Tribute Communities, at 10 p.m. will close the day with a spectacular celebration of light.
