Canada DAY 2020

Come Celebrate Canada Day!

“The magic is outside!”  Things aren’t back to normal yet, because of COVID but there’s so much we can do outside now that nature is coming back to life!


Here’s how everyone can participate:


Wednesday afternoon, June 30 or before noon on July 1:

  • Canada Day Parade of Homes – Decorate your home, yard, front door, window, tree, car, bike (see July 1 parade below) – anything you can think of.
  • Build a sandcastle – If you don’t have beach access, try the Seaside right of way, across from Astle Park on Beach Road or opposite the municipal office beside Notre-Dame-de-La-Compassion (both conveniently close to Café sur Mer and Atelier culinaire Pierre-Olivier Ferry – Les Boules glacées!).
  • Paint (or build with) rocks– Make a rock animal or snake of painted rocks, spell out or add painted messages, or construct an inukshuk.
