Communities join together for Canada Day at Clementsport Legion
CLEMENTSPORT - Canada Day celebrations return to Clementsport Legion July 1 with three communities joining together to make it a spectacular day.
Canada Day in Bear River is bigger and better than ever for Canada 150. One of the most popular events is the Homemade Pie Auction. The pies fetch a good price, but sometimes they don’t make it home before they’re shared and devoured on picnic tables at the village’s waterfront.
REAR RIVER - Bear River will celebrate Canada 150 with a ton of fun and food on the waterfront July 1 – and they’re even filling a time capsule.
The little village that straddles two counties will be putting on a big show that kicks off with a yard sale at 10 a.m. and finishes with fireworks at 9:45 p.m. In between there’s a hotdog barbecue, crafts for kids, musical entertainment, a ham and baked bean supper, and a big Canada 150 birthday cake.
Throw in a giant waterslide, a homemade pie auction, and a guided tour of the village and it makes for a full day.
