If you plan to celebrate Canada day in Nakusp, be prepared to get woken up by a fire truck.
Members of the Volunteer Fire Department drive around town waking people up using lights, sirens, and every other annoyance thing they can think of in an attempt to get people to the Canada Day pancake breakfast fundraiser at the firehall.
Once you have a gut full of pancakes and sausages head over to the other Canada day celebrations including an old-school soap-box derby.
At night the Volunteer Fire Department puts on a celebration of Fireworks, with a surprisingly large amount of kabooms for such a small town. Show usually lasts around 13 minutes. Most people watch from the waterfron gardens.
