Canada Day kicks off in LeBourdais Park

Rain, rain, go away, it’s Canada Day!

Droves of residents showed up in LeBourdais Park today (July 1) to celebrate the nation’s birthday.

Local entertainer Eddie DeSouza sang the national anthem, and local dignitaries spoke, wishing everyone a Happy Canada Day.

Entertainment takes place on the main stage until 4 p.m., and there are plenty of activities for the little ones to take part in, including crafts, a bouncy castle, and a slip n’ slide.

See you at the park!
