|Cloudy skies, but No Rain for those taking in the Canada Day celebrations|
at Mariner's Park on Friday
As it should be on anyone's birthday, the weather Gods cooperated with the rain of the morning clearing out just in time for the launch of Prince Rupert's 4 hour daytime celebration of Canada's Birthday at Mariner's Park.
The sun peeked through the clouds for much of the four hours, while Rupertites and visitors to the North Coast enjoyed some of the birthday cake on hand for the day and participated in the many events scheduled from Noon until four.
Should the weather continue to cooperate for organizers, the Canada Day Fireworks Display will take place tonight at 11:15 with the best vantage point for viewing once again Mariner's Park.
Below some snapshots of a day in the park (click to enlarge), an afternoon full of red and white and a large amount of delight as part of the the North Coast's popular Canada Day celebrations.
