Canada Day

Celebrate Canada's Birthday in it's Sunniest City!


On July 1, the Canada Day Society activities begin!  Start with a Free Pancake Breakfast, then travel through beautiful Kin Coulee Park to the Children's Zone and Hobby Market.  For lunch enjoy some local faire at the Food Alley, then have some Free Birthday Cake.  Catch some local talent at the Bandshell or take a Hayride to the Youth Stage.

As evening draws near the Sandfly Festival will begin.  Bring your lawn chair or picnic blanket and come early for a good spot!  At 4:15pm the first of four bands will begin.  A finale like no other will end this great concert set as the Canada Day Fireworks show begins.
