A picnic in the park to celebrate Canada's 147th birthday!
Canada Day celebrations in Prince Rupert are held annually in Mariner's Park to celebrate Canada's birthday. On July 1st, locals and visitors gather at Mariner's Memorial Park on 1st Ave E and McBride St. Ethnic foods, live music, and other entertainment that represent Canada's cultural mosaic are enjoyed on this day. Birthday cake is served by the Mayor and other local VIP's to anyone who wants a taste of sweetness. The day culminates with fireworks over the harbour that light up the summer sky upon dusk.
