Canada Day!

In just a few days, on Sunday, July 1st, the Peace River Museum and the Town of Peace River are set to celebrate Canada Day! The festivities start at the Museum at 11:30 am with bag-piper Josh Craigen, "O Canada" will be sung by Tenille Brennan, the flag will be raised by the RCMP in their official Red Serge with Air Cadet Squadron #124,  Mackenzie Moose will be out to play and of course there will be inspirational speeches. Come and join us for the opening ceremonies decked out in your red and white and bring your decorated bikes and strollers.

The Museum is offering FREE admission on Sunday from 12 - 4 pm in honour of Canada Day! Come and see our exhibits about paddling through time, the fur trade, and rocks and fossils.

After the opening ceremonies, the biking and walking parade will head over to Riverfront Park for entertainment, games, and food (for purchase). All of this fun happens from 12 - 3 pm at Riverfront Park. The Town is still looking for volunteers to help out at the park, if you have some time to give and want to have some fun, contact Community Services at (780)624-1000.

Don't forget the fireworks display, thanks to the Town of Peace River and Northern Sunrise County, at 11:59 pm on Sunday evening.
