The village began planning the May 31 celebration back in March in hopes of celebrating the village’s incorporation, which took place back on May 27, 1949. When the village was incorporated, it had the largest surface area of any village in the province at the time, spanning 2,020 acres. In 2004, the village officially changed its name from the Corporation of the Village of Harrison Hot Springs to the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

The village was named after Benjamin Harrison, who is the former deputy governor of the Hudson’s Bay Company.
