To mark Canada’s 145th birthday, a huge celebration took place in Fort St. John. A pancake breakfast kicked off the festivities and soon after countless excited people lined the streets in anticipation of the parade The activities in Centennial Park attracted individuals of all ages. Children let out energized cries while playing games in the park and the adults especially enjoyed the Classic Cruisers Show & Shine. I personally enjoyed wandering and looking at all of the fancy old cars and listening to the music performances in the park. The Canada Day events continued into the evening with even more talented musicians providing entertainment for the community. Finally, Canada Day ended with a bang as the magnificent fireworks filled the sky. It really was uplifting to see the community uniting over a joint love for Canada.
