Canada Day in Trin­ity-Conception

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - BY MELISSA JENK­INS AND NI­CHOLAS MERCER

Our na­tion’s birth­day was cel­e­brated last Wed­nes­day, and peo­ple of all ages came out to take part in the fun, laugh­ter, food and en­ter­tain­ment. From ob­sta­cle cour­ses in­volv­ing jump rope to bouncy cas­tles, there was much to do and plenty to see. Bike pa­rades were a pop­u­lar event this year, with many kids dec­o­rat­ing their wheels with bal­loons and Canada flags.

No mat­ter where you were in Trin­ity-Conception dur­ing the Canada Day hol­i­day, there were plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties to take in.

From Bay Roberts and Up­per Is­land Cove, to Cavendish and New Per­li­can, The Com­pass was on hand to cap­ture some of the ex­cel­lent mo­ments from the day.

From pa­rades to ob­sta­cle cour­ses, these towns showed com­mu­nity pride with a large turn out at each event.

The weather co-op­er­ated, the sun shone down, and ev­ery­one seemed to have a great time.

Here are some snap­shots into the Canada Day cel­e­bra­tions in Trin­ity Conception.
