Grab your red clothes, Canadian flag and sunglasses and come out and show your Canadian spirit at the annual Canada Day celebrations at John Peake Park.

“We encourage the community to come out and celebrate an old fashioned Canada Day fit for the whole family,” said Nancie Huneault, Events Coordinator at the City of Chestermere. “There are events throughout the day, so you can come and go anytime.”

Starting the celebrations is a free pancake breakfast in John Peake Park at 9:00 a.m. followed by entertainment all day at the Pavilion Stage.

While listening to the tunes of amazing local artists, your family can watch the bunny races or join in some good old fashioned games and races! Be sure to bring some extra cash for treasures to be found at the trading post, food vendors and book sale.

If you have room for dessert, come and enjoy free birthday cake at the Library at 1 p.m. In the evening there will be a social Latin dance under the Pavilion. The night will end with fireworks at the north side of the Lake.

All day the City is accepting food and monetary donations on behalf of the Chestermere Food Bank for Fort McMurray residents. There is a need for canned meat/fish, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, pasta and soups.

“This is a fun event, where residents can stay local and celebrate the day. This year we are giving back to our neighbours in the north who need it most,” said Huneault.
