‘Sur­pris­ing’ Theme for Hat­ley Canada Day Cel­e­bra­tion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Our coun­try, with its vast land­scapes and di­verse com­mu­ni­ties, truly is a land of sur­prises with much to dis­cover. That’s why the or­ga­niz­ers of the 105th An­nual Hat­ley Canada Day Cel­e­bra­tion have cho­sen “Canada: Land of Sur­prises” for the theme of this year’s pa­rade. Now, it will be up to the float mak­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pa­rade, which will be held on Mon­day, July 1st 2013, to fig­ure out how to best il­lus­trate this won­der­ful as­pect of our her­itage as they vie for some of the thou­sands of dollars in prize money that is given away each year!

Al­though plan­ning is still un­der­way to make this year’s event the best yet and not all of the ac­tiv­i­ties are fi­nal­ized for the day, one ac­tiv­ity that is re­turn­ing is the soap­box derby. The soap­box derby is for young driv­ers aged at least 7 years old as of the day of the race. There’s still time to build a cart; any­one look­ing for in­struc­tions on how to fabri­cate a soap box can con­tact the Canada Day or­ga­niz­ers at hat­ley­pa­rade@hot­mail.com or check on­line at www.hat­ley­pa­rade.com. The cel­e­bra­tion will also in­clude the tra­di­tional chil­dren’s games, horse-drawn wagon rides, live mu­sic and fire­works.

For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about the cel­e­bra­tion, please email your in­quiry to hat­ley­pa­rade@hot­mail.com or call Kylie at (819) 821-3282.
