Celebrate Canada Day in style

Plans are coming along for Canada Day celebrations in both Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz.

July 1 is a Friday this year, and festivities are being planned throughout the day, starting at 8:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the Harrison firehall and ending with fireworks over the lake at about 10 p.m.

Also in Harrison that day are children’s entertainers along the beachfront, ceremonies at noon complete with Canada’s birthday cake, and a performance by Treblehook in the early evening.

The parade starts at 6 p.m. and carries through town.
