Our little town does a good job of honoring Canada on her birthday. We have a park right on the main street and various vendors come out to sell their wares, community service clubs and emergency services participate to keep up awareness of their contributions to the local community, entertainers keep everybody amused and make for a happy atmosphere, a couple of games of street hockey are played (what else would we play in Canada?),
the national anthem is sung and our flag honored:
