Canada’s milestone birthday filled with festivities
Canada’s sesquicentennial birthday party will be hosted by volunteers from several communities and organizations. Governments and local businesses are contributing financially to the large slate of activities, enabling all Canadians and friends to participate for free. Activities will run from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on July 1 and include an artisan market, historical procession, live entertainment, featuring Kevin Davison, trivia contests, BMX demonstration, soccer matches, bounce kingdom, and more.
Meals will be available at cost. Party-goers will be en- couraged to display their Canadian and Nova Scotia pride by wearing their favourite costumes. The party will end with a spectacular fireworks outside of the capital region.
A cheque presentation was recently made to some members of the Canada 150: Before & Beyond celebrations. Presenting their donation for the festivities were RCL Kingston Branch 098 president Dave Geddes and vice-president Glen Paul. The Kingston legion is also part of the organizational committee and is preparing breakfast at the legion for the occasion.
