The Waskesiu Recreation Association presents CANADA DAY 2021 ACTIVITIES . . .

The Recreation Grounds on Montreal Drive will serve as the hub for the Canada Day activities.  The activities will be from 12 to 4 pm on July 1st. We will be handing out 500 cupcakes at the recreation grounds and volunteers will also be distributing them on the streets.  We will also be handing out frisbees, Canadian pins and tattoos, at the Recreation Grounds. There are 5 locations that will host live entertainment, they include bands, buskers and First Nations drumming and dancers.  At 1 pm we will have the entertainers lead the audience in their area in the singing of O Canada.  We are calling it Salute to Canada.  We want as much noise as possible, similar to the salute to Health Care Workers during COVID.  So, boats in the water blowing their horns, pots and pans and the singing.  It will be really cool if we can pull it off!

The buoyed swim area at Paignton Beach was moved to reduce the potential for injury caused by having swimmers and boaters in the same area. With so many people enjoying Paignton Beach, especially around the point, and the increasing size and number of boats in the area, the decision was made to centralize the swim area and provide boat parking on either side.
