Chilliwack's big Canada Day Celebration is ready to go.

The stage show will put the spotlight on local country artist Todd Richard and headliner Inez Jasper.

The 2014 community event on Tuesday, July 1 is presented by Chilliwack Community Arts Council with 98.5 The Drive and the City of Chilliwack on the grounds of the Chilliwack Landing again this year.

The day starts off with a pancake breakfast at Evergreen Hall served up by the Sardis Kiwanis and served by RCMP in Red Serge. Music by the Chilliwack Community Band and proceeds from the breakfast go to the Special Olympians.

There's fun in store for families with bouncy castles in the infield with the rest of the grounds sporting booths set up by local clubs and non-profits. Take a relaxing ride on the Rotary Train or try out the Fanboni.

There is even an opportunity to dunk a celebrity for charity.

There will be free skating at the Prospera Centre from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., free swimming at the Leisure Centre from 2 to 5 p.m., and competitions at the Skate Board Park.

The event is capped off with a spectacular fireworks show at Townsend Park at starting at 10 pm.
