Canada Day parade time change

This year’s Canada Day Parade will start 30 minutes earlier than usual

  • Jun. 29, 2016 8:00 a.m.

This year’s Canada Day Parade will start 30 minutes earlier than usual, at 10 a.m., with the 5th St. Mile foot race going at 9:30.

This will not affect the timing of the Ducky 500 or other popular aspects of the annual celebration of our nation’s birthday but, along with efforts to tighten up the progress of the parade, the earlier start is designed to give people more time to enjoy the rest of the day.

Museum open house

On Canada Day, drop by the Courtenay and District Museum after the parade and help celebrate our country’s birthday.

There will be free admission, balloons and door prize draws between noon and 4 p.m.

Special activities will include cupcake walks for all ages and a hands-on craft for kids.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Alan Jossul.

Canada Day is a great chance to explore history at the museum.

The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay. FMI: 250-334-0686.
