Fireworks in Harrison ready to rock on Canada Day

Fireworks show is the highlight of a busy Canada Day in Harrison Hot Springs

Harrison Hot Springs has an all-day line up of activities to keep you busy this Canada Day, and no one is looking forward to the festivities more than the Village’s Mayor Leo Facio.

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

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Facio said. “It’s going to be a wonderful day and I’m told the weather is going to cooperate.”

Facio will be joined by Agassiz Mayor John Van Laerhoven in one of the Thunderbird Club’s vehicles, as part of the parade. And while some years the parade has been on the small side, this year there are more than 30 groups signed up to take part.

They include the local cadets, who are bringing their band, the Miami Streamkeepers and plenty of children’s groups. Even the Multicultural Choir will be riding aboard a vintage truck.

Facio said the Canada Day festivities are something he always looks forward to, ever since moving to Canada so many years ago.

“I might be from England, but I’m a true Canadian!” he said.

The fun all starts early, at 8:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the Harrison Fire Hall.

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.

Entertainment is planned in the plaza throughout the day, including Korbitron Dance Studio, a flag raising ceremony with the RCMP in red serge, a formal welcome by the Sts’ailes and free Canada Day cake for everyone.

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.
