Canada Day in the Village

Harrison Hot Springs celebrates our nation right until sundown

Harrison Hot Springs has an all-day line up of activities to keep you busy this Canada Day.

From the pancake breakfast and children’s programming, right up to the always amazing fireworks display, the day is jam-packed with celebrations.

The fun all starts early, at 8:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the Harrison Fire Hall. The action then moves to the plaza, with a performance by Korbitron Dance Studio, the RCMP Flag Raising Ceremony, singing of O’ Canada, a Sts’ailes welcome with Sasquatch dancers, and of course, the serving of Canada Day cake.

Children’s games will be held from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on the beachfront, and the parade will start at 5 p.m., winding its way down Hot Springs Road to the beachfront.

Treble Hook plays at the plaza from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., when the sun finally sets and the sky fills up with everyone’s favourite show of all — the fireworks.
