Still time to get involved with Canada Day celebrations

Dear editor,

As chair of the Courtenay July 1st committee I am writing this to remind everyone that there is still time to get involved with the annual celebrations on Canada Day.

Parade applications are free and available at City Hall or on line at wwwcomoxvalleycanadaday.ca. With over $2,000 in prizes, you’re entry could win.

Food and craft booth applications are also on line or you can can pick up at the counter although they are going fast.

The 19 years and under “Battle of the Bands” give local youth a shot at making a professional record and having it played on local radio. There is still room for a  three more bands to enter...and it’s free!

Make sure you come down and take in this annual fun, free, family event. With music in Simms Park Saturday, Sunday and Monday night as well as shows at the Sid Williams and the Native Sons Hall, it’s too good to miss....and it’s all free!

Edwin Grieve,

Chair, Canada Day committee
