It is no secret Canada Day is my favorite holiday. Canada Day has always meant the official kick off to summer celebration! As a kid I always enjoyed my town’s Canada Day festivities, Morin Heights always had lots going on and as kids we always enjoyed the live bands and huge bonfire. I have always enjoyed taking my kids to celebrate around our town.
My son really enjoys the bike parade every year, and spends a few days planning how he is going to decorate his bike in festive red and white. This year was no different. There were a few activities for the kids to enjoy at the youth centre. They played games, some of the prizes at the games were mustaches which the kids had fun with…and these awful looking teeth, which are really funny for little boys! The kids could have their faces painted, and who doesn’t love a dunk tank! Is that wrong that we take so much pleasure in making someone fall into ice-cold water?
What Canada Day celebration would be complete without fireworks? Everyone loves fireworks and we always enjoy them from Nanny and Papa’s deck, we have a great view and avoid any crowds…it’s perfect. This year Eganville and the Bonnechere Valley Township Fire Department did a fantastic job!
Thanks for a job well done, we can’t wait for next year!
