There’s no shortage of activities lined up in Beaverton to mark Canada Day.
The fun gets underway at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the curling club, which runs until noon.
Some of the other activities lined up at that venue include a visit from some characters from Paw Patrol (for an hour at both 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.) and the presentation of the Harold Lodwick Citizenship Award (at 10:30 a.m.).
The Beaverton & District Conservation Club will host its cane pole fishing derby for kids from 9 to 11 a.m. at the harbour, while the members of the local historical society will be serving up strawberry shortcake at The Meeting Place starting at 11 a.m. The Beaver River Museum – and its gift shop – will also open at 11 a.m. for tours.
The ever-popular Canada Day parade will make its way through the village at 1 p.m. starting at the fairgrounds, where the celebrations are slated to get into full swing in the evening.
A barbecue and horse-drawn wagon rides get underway at 6 p.m., followed by live entertainment for kids at 6:15 p.m. and family-friendly activities (face-painting, mini putt, a bubble station and races) at 6:30 p.m.
Live music is slated to begin at 7:15 p.m. leading into the fireworks at dusk.
