Canada Day fes­tiv­i­ties

If you’re in Glen­garry on Canada Day then you should con­sider your­self lucky. Glen­gar­ri­ans love cel­e­brat­ing their coun­try’s birth­day, which is why you’ll see lots of red and white and maple leaves around these parts when July 1 ar­rives.

At least two of our com­mu­ni­ties celebrate early. Glen Robert­son will hold its cel­e­bra­tion on June 27, start­ing at noon and end­ing at mid­night. It in­cludes ev­ery­thing from a pa­rade to live mu­sic to a $1,000 draw.

Maxville al­ways cel­e­brates on June 30 so it doesn’t have to com­pete with larger cen­tres like Alexandria. Show up at the Maxville Fair­grounds around 6 that evening and you’ll be able to take in a bar­be­cue, games for the kids, a lip sync con­test, and fire­works at dusk.

Of course, July 1 is an even big­ger day with plenty of fun through­out the county. If you’re in Alexandria, you may want to take in the pa­rade on Main Street be­fore ven­tur­ing to Is­land Park for a day of fun and fire­works.

In South Glen­garry, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Char­lot­ten­burgh Park. The park is bustling with live en­ter­tain­ment and ven­dors and the beach is al­ways open for swimming too.

Other com­mu­ni­ties like Ap­ple Hill and Mart­in­town also have Canada Day ac­tiv­i­ties planned this year.
