Canada Day in Greater Trail: Red, white and patriotic

Trail Kiwanis have joined the city and Village of Fruitvale to bring one big July 1 party to Beaver Creek Park.

Canada Day should be a blast in Greater Trail this year.

Before the 149th birthday celebrations culminate with the sky lit up, the Trail Kiwanis Club has joined the city and Village of Fruitvale to bring one big party to Kiwanis Beaver Creek Park.

The event kicks off with a $5 pancake and sausage breakfast from 8-10:30 a.m., followed by a barbecue hamburger or hot dog lunch. Family fun including children’s games, face painting and scavenger hunt begin at 10 a.m. Live entertainment for all ages and community group displays run throughout the day.

The national anthem will be sung at noon with free red and white iced cake to follow.

Free wheelchair accessible bus service to and from Beaver Creek is available from downtown Trail at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Pick up and drop off sites are in Shavers Bench at Seventh Ave. and McBride; Highway Drive and the city works yard; and Old Waneta Road in front of Maglio Building Supplies.

The bus leaves the park at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and when the day winds up at 3 p.m.

Event organizers reminds guests that dogs are not permitted in the Kiwanis Beaver Creek Park area.
