Communities celebrate Canada’s birthday

The Town of Slave Lake’s annual Canada Day party went ahead as usual on July 1. There was the free lunch, kids’ games and entertainment. What wasn’t usual about it was that it was indoors.

The threat of rain moved the venue from Schurter Park to the Multi Rec Centre.

The event started at noon. Already by 10 after, there was a line up for free burgers. The Legion cooked and served 800 burgers, so it’s fair to say around 800 people attended the event from noon to 3 p.m.

Paul Isaak, comedian and juggler from Calgary, and other entertainers provided live entertainment. There were kids games, face painting and pie and watermelon eating competitions.
