Countdown to Canada Day begins

Bring your lawn chairs and hang out for an amazing line-up of entertainment, food and festivities.

The countdown is on to Cranbrook’s best ever Canada Day celebrations. Bring your lawn chairs and hang out for an amazing line-up of entertainment, food and festivities.  The fun will kick off at Moir Park on July 1st at 5pm with two stages of music and acts, games for all ages, the area’s best food vendors, and if that wasn’t enough, a fireworks display twice the size of last year’s starting around 11pm.

Live performances from Dewey, Chetuem and Howe, REDGIRL, the Connect Band and the Good Ol’ Goats are going to be rocking the park throughout the evening.  There won’t be a kid in the place moaning the words, “Mom I’m bored”, with Choco Pop the Clown, Glow Zumba, Aspire Dance, Retro Aerobics, bouncy castles, face painting, sports and games to keep them occupied.  Not to mention the sugar rush to be had from the mini donuts, shaved ice and other goodies that will be available.

“Our goal this Canada Day is simple. We want to love on Cranbrook by throwing the biggest party for this country that this city has ever seen.” announced Frank Hackett, Canada Day planner and leader of Connect Church.

The magnitude of this event would not be possible without the incredible support of the community and the generosity of our Canada Day sponsors.  Those who have significantly contributed to this effort are: Spring Honda; Selkirk Signs; Freightliner; Kootenay Landscape; City of Cranbrook; Heritage Canada; the District Community Foundation; The Bedroom Furniture Galleries; the Townsman and Advertiser; B-104 and The Drive; The Painted Crate; Signal Collision; Bridge Interiors; and Aaron’s Furniture.
