July 1st in the Village of Westport; Happy Birthday Canada

Cenotaph - Canadian flag

The Canada Day celebrations in the Village will begin at 1:30 on July 1st at the George St side of Lockwood Park.  Events include the grand opening of the stage and announcing the Westport Senior of the Year.  MPP Steve Clark will be here to help us cut the ribbon.

The parade will then begin and we are inviting everyone to be IN the parade again this year.  There is a space for you if you fall into any of these categories: boys and girls, girls and boys and kids with their bikes.  Other categories include dogs and their owners, musicians, clowns, men and women, grandmas, grandpas, aunties, uncles and cousins, antique vehicles and floats.   The Westport Senior of the Year will lead the parade – right behind the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 542 Colour Party. The Fire Fighters will be joining the fun again this year. Join the fun on July 1st and show your home town pride by wearing red and white!.

The parade begins on George St and proceeds to Bedford St, to Church St, down Church to Spring St and end at the Community Centre where Sparky will be waiting for the kids and the Legion will have treats.

And at 5:00 p.m., everyone can join the rest of the July 1st events at Rideau Vista Public School, where there will be a BBQ, games for the kids, live music and, of course, the best fireworks in Eastern Ontario.

Happy Canada Day!
