It will be up to District of Kent residents to celebrate Canada Day on their own this year.
The district announced on Friday (June 12) that district in-person celebrations of Canada Day 2020 are cancelled due to the pandemic, based on recommendations of health officials.
“Canada Day is not cancelled, only the district’s celebrations are,” said Mayor Sylvia Pranger in a statement. “Residents are encouraged to celebrate in their own way.”
Like Harrison Hot Springs, though, the district is taking celebrations online. District officials encourage residents to decorate their homes and get plenty of pictures of them celebrating Canada Day together and post them on the CRCC’s Facebook and Instagram pages with the special hashtag #KentCanadaDay to show community spirit. The CRCC team will post family activity suggestions soon as well as a chance to win a Canada Day grab bag.
For more information, please contact Jennifer Thornton, director of community services and projects, at 604-796-2235 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
