The True North Strong and Free
Jun 26, 2013
Canada Day is just around the corner and, if you’re like most Peace Country residents, you are looking for events to paint the town red and white.
If you are in the Fort St. John vicinity, Centennial Park is the place to be. The city will be hosting a myriad of family-fun events starting with their annual parade. The city-wide celebration will continue with a Classic Car Show n’ Shine and a market celebrating local artists and vendors.
Don’t forget to stop by the North Peace Museum for a slice of one of Canada’s favorite desserts, homemade pie a’la mode. Cap off the day’s events with a spectacular firework presentation.
La Crete will be ringing in Canada’s 146th birthday bright and early with a tasty pancake breakfast. Folks can then head to one of the many events going on during the day, including a loonie hunt at the Heritage Centre Sandbox and car races at the Penner Speedway.
In Grande Prairie, folks are encouraged to embrace our nation’s rich history at the GP Museum, located across the bridge from the iconic Muskoseepi Park. The museum will be welcoming Children's musical performer and Juno Award Nominee Mary Lambert for three showtimes. Families can also participate in an assortment of unique Canuck activities such as ham radio demos, Canadian trivia bingo, and old-fashioned ice cream churning and tasting.
No matter where you are in the Peace Region there will be some awesome Canada Day Celebrations close by.
