Canada Day is fast approaching and we should take this unique opportunity to celebrate Canada and its people, who make it a proud and grand nation.
Take the time to take in the Canada Day celebrations being held in Whitehorse by participating in the various events being held.
That includes the 11 a.m. parade on Main Street and Second Avenue; the noontime opening ceremonies with our commissioner at Shipyards Park; the free musical show starting at 1 p.m. and entertainment at the park all afternoon long as well as various activities for all members of the family. Also taste the food from various ethnics groups, have a beer at the beer garden if you wish or simply enjoy being with friends.
For more details check out the Canada Day ads in all Yukon newspapers.
Parade entry forms are available in the foyer of the Whitehorse Legion at 503 Steele Street and through the Canada Day coordinator. Participants must keep in mind that they are totally responsible for their parade entries, even if they forget to sign the parade waiver. Non-profit organizations wishing to operate a food stand must contact the Canada Day coordinator to get the appropriate forms at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be a proud Canadian, wave our flag, sing our national anthem and participate. Canada Day comes only once a year!
