Juno winner Stacy McKitrick part of Agassiz Canada Day celebrations this Sunday

One of country music’s fastest rising stars will touch down in Agassiz for a special concert on Canada Day.

Stacey McKitrick will perform on Sunday, July 1. In the past month, McKitrick has performed for Great Big Sea and Lady Antebellum. She’s already the proud recipient of a Juno Award, for her work on the collaborative song Raising Flag. Her recent hit, Friends for Life, was written by Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, who offered her the song.

You can watch the video online at staceymckitrick.com, or come out to see her perform live in Pioneer Park.

The show is just part of a line-up planned to help families celebrate Canada Day this year in Agassiz.

It all begins with pancake breakfast at the Agassiz Legion at 9:30 a.m., admission by donation. The party in Pioneer Park begins at 11 a.m., with welcoming ceremonies from local dignitaries, a community birthday cake to enjoy, along with a scavenger hunt, fish pond and inflatables for the kids to play on. There will be face painting by Lilac and children’s entertainer Shé, before Stacey McKitrick hits the stage.

The Agassiz Farm Fresh Market will run through the festivities, showcasing some of the area’s finest baked and grown goods. There will also be community displays, contests, games and prizes to be won.

As an added treat, swimming at the Ferny Coombe pool is free from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
