Have you been wondering what’s happening in your area this Canada Day?

Fort Saskatchewan announced its plans for Canada Day in mid-June, including a drive-thru pancake breakfast, fireworks, and a mini-parade. Here’s what others have planned for Canada’s birthday:

Strathcona County:
 
Strathcona County kicked off a week of Canada Day celebrations on Monday (June 28). The county is offering a wide range of free virtual and in-person workout classes, including dance fitness, barre, classes for 50+, kickboxing and more. In addition, a free Canada Day golf clinic is being offered at the Broadmoor Golf Course driving range for those new to the sport. Free rentals are also included.

Free disc golfing (including rentals) is also running at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre. Rentals are available at the information centre daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 
 
The annual Canada Day pancake breakfast will go forward this year; however, it will be a drive-thru event and attendees are asked to pre-register for a time slot to pick up their pancakes. The breakfast will be held in the Festival Place parking lot. Food trucks can be found in five community locations throughout the week.
 
Strathcona County is holding fireworks this year over Broadmoor Lake Park and are scheduled to go off at 11 p.m.
   
Bruderheim:
 
A neighbourhood parade is being held in the evening on Canada Day and residents are encouraged to watch the parade from their front lawns. Floats will be judged with categories including best float, best theme, best horse or agricultural entry, and best vehicle entry. The parade will begin at 7 p.m., and a parade route can be found here.
 
Lamont:
 
Lamont is holding virtual celebrations this year. The town encourages people to show their Canadian pride by decorating their homes and submitting their pictures to be put into a Canada Day video for the county. Participants will also be entered to win a prize.
 
Bon Accord:
 
Similar to Lamont, Bon Accord residents can decorate their homes for a chance to win one of three prize packs offered by the town.
 
Several municipalities, including Fort Saskatchewan, Morinville and Strathcona County partnered up to create a regional Canada Day activity booklet full of recipes, games and fun facts about the local area. Each community also created a colouring page for the booklet, which can be found here.
 
Morinville:
 
Morinville has cancelled its Canada Day plans after St. Jean Baptiste Church burned down on Wednesday.
