did you spend our nation’s 143rd
birthday? I spent Canada Day
in Fort St. John’s Centennial Park
taking in a vast array of celebratory
The annual parade ran through town, showcasing many of Fort St. John’s
sports groups, clubs,
businesses and community groups. The fun and games then moved into the
park, where blow up toys, a dunk tank, face painting, and a petting zoo entertained
Adults also kept busy with the Farmer's Market showcase. At the market you can find fresh
produce, home baked goods, and crafts.
The Canada Day festivities also
gave an opportunity for locals to show off their prized possessions. The
Classic Cruiser Show & Shine blocked off the street to display
different types of impressive and antique vehicles.
Singers and dancers also had the chance to show
off; they performed on stage and showcased the amazing talent found in Fort St. John
. Many of the singers are
regular performers at local pubs’ "open mic" nights.
Although Canada Day is
over, most spectators found themselves enlightened by the extensive
opportunities offered in Fort St. John
