Canada Day in Trinity-Conception
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.
