Happy Birthday, Canada!

The Drumheller Valley will be celebrating this milestone in a big way.

"Because it's Canada's 150th, it's going to be the biggest one yet. Our lineup is huge, we have some different kinds of entertainment this year," stated Judy Quintin-Arvidson, one of the organizers for this year's festivities.

The day will kick off with the Kinsmen Pancake Breakfast from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00, followed by the parade.

"Riverside will have their breakfast again and then the parade takes off at 10:00 a.m. from 12 Street by the old St. Anthony's. It goes down Riverside Drive, straight across Riverside all the way up 3rd Avenue to the Bankers Corner and then back on South Dinosaur Trail," Quintin-Arvidson explained.

The daily events will include a toonie public swim, bouncy castles, Lothar the Magician and much more.

"Stuffed Kilt will be there, Dino Doughnuts will be there, the soccer team will be selling water bottles and then of course the arena will be full of farmers market stuff. There's tons of vendors who will be in there," concluded Quintin-Arvidson.
