Sun shines on County Canada Day celebrations

Prinyer's Cove neighbours mark decade of celebration For the past 10 years, neighbours in the Prinyers Cove Crescent area have been honouring Canada’s birthday with a community parade, party and lots of food. This year’s event included an extra ingredient: donation bins in support of the food bank in Picton.  Shown in B Ernst's photo are some of the party-goers in their Canadian regalia.  The Ernsts and Chambers co-hosted the celebration.

Prinyer’s Cove neighbours mark decade of celebration – For the past 10 years, neighbours in the Prinyers Cove Crescent area have been honouring Canada’s birthday with a community parade, party and lots of food. This year’s event included an extra ingredient: donation bins in support of the food bank in Picton. Shown in B Ernst’s photo are some of the party-goers in their Canadian regalia. The Ernsts and Chambers co-hosted the celebration.

The sun beating down on Canada Day felt like 34 C and the threat of rain stayed away from celebrations in the County.
Wellington’s party started with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Friends of the Wellington Museum. Meanwhile, the parade of red and white mustered at the arena and travelled down Main Street to the cheers of onlookers. Grand Marshalls were Lions Club President Art Hewer and past-president Janet Marissen. Honourary Marshall was Historian Betty Cronk. (Video follows photographs)

Following the parade, the County School of Dance students performed at the park where there was also a food court.  In the afternoon, a Kids Fun Zone was featured at CML Snider School.

The Picton Legion hosted an afternoon garden party featuring 50s and 60s music, a barbecue, raffles and draws.

In downtown Picton, most of the Main Street was closed for sidewalk sales and festivities including a Dog Parade and Come Alive Outside sodded area offering of soccer, hula-hooping and chalk drawing. The Picton Pirates hockey club invited community members to play ball hockey outside the Armoury. Fun for the kids continued at Delhi Park well into the evening when the crowds gathered for the bursts of celebration in the form of fireworks.
