Free Canada Day Celebrations in Mission July 1

It’s a party and everyone is invited.

The District of Mission’s Canada Day celebrations happen July 1 at Fraser River Heritage Park, and unless you’re feeling a bit peckish, leave the wallets at home as everything else is free.

The day kicks off with a pancake breakfast from 8:30 until 11:30 a.m., with proceeds to Emergency Social Services, followed by the flag raising and singing of the national anthem.

Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., take part in gladiator jousting, hay rides, a climbing wall, junior firefighter challenge or learn to juggle.

Music and entertainment in the gazebo and on the main stage runs from 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. and features performances from the Fraser Valley Fiddlers and Cloggers, Dry Rain Band, Fraser Valley Academy of Dance, the Punjabi Cultural Bangra Club, and Mission Belly Dancers, to name a few.

If you want to prove your musical prowess, take part in Mission’s Got Talent, happening on the main stage from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The close-out musical event of the day will be Big City Soul, which takes the main stage at 8:30 p.m.

Other highlights include the Baia Brothers X-treme Bike Show (12:30, 2:45, and 5 p.m.), the Loggers Show (11:30 a.m., 1:45 and 4 p.m.), and the Matsqui Flyball and Agility Superdawg Show (11 a.m., 1:15 and 3:30 p.m.).
