Canada Day Schedule full of events; organizers could still use some help
Events start up at Noon with the singing of O Canada and a chance to have a slice of Birthday Cake to salute the nation's big day.
The city's growing list of food vendors will be on hand to offer up a smorgasbord of culinary treats, highlighting the mosaic of the nations taste buds. All of it part of the picnic in the park focus for the afternoon which takes place until 4 PM.
Music will be featured on the main stage at Mariner's with the Prince Rupert Community Band and a number of special guests on hand to entertain through the four hours of the afternoon events.
Games, Face painting, trivia and other activities are planned for the younger ones as well to help keep the afternoon moving along.
Late evening brings the Fireworks Display scheduled for an 11:15 PM show, weather permitting with the Prince Rupert harbour to be the backdrop for the night time finale for the nation's celebration.
You can find out more about the Canada Day plans from the Special Events Society website or Facebook page.
As well, if you have some spare time to share for the celebration give the organizers of the event a shout, they could use a few volunteers to help out with some of the planned activities for the day.
