TRIN­ITY-CON­CEP­TION, NL — Less-than-ideal weather didn’t de­ter folks in in Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion area from cel­e­brat­ing the 150th an­niver­sary of Canada.

A down­pour of rain forced some towns to al­ter their plans for the morn­ing of July 1, though the af­ter­noon proved to be more hos­pitable for events.

Com­pass re­porters were out and about Satur­day to take in some events and snag pho­tos.
