Canada Day planning well underway for Summerland

Canada Day celebrations are starting to shape up for Summerland with the Royal Canadian Legion branch 22 planning events

Canada Day celebrations are starting to shape up for Summerland with the Royal Canadian Legion branch 22 planning events for Monday, July 1.

Building on last year’s success, the Legion has expanded entertainment in the park from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Performers will include several bands, pianists, guitar players and singers. Many of these acts were finalists in the recent Summerland’s Got Talent competition said organizers. As well as adding to the live music acts will be an improved sound system.

The flag-raising ceremony will take place at 11 a.m., followed by serving of a special Canada Day cake, ice cream and a barbecue. All the food is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help defray the costs.

Traditional picnic games with prizes will be hosted by the Summerland Girl Guides and SADI will have face painters for the kids. Other events are still being planned and will be announced next week.

Organizers remind those who plan on attending Canada Day events to bring their own chairs as seating is very limited.

A complete schedule to the entertainment for Canada Day will be available at www.SummerlandLegion.ca.
