Join the city of St. Albert for a lively daylong celebration of Canada’s 149th birthday, courtesy of Christenson Developments. Rotary Park and Riel Recreation Park will once again host a myriad of family-friendly activities, food vendors, and live entertainment for the entire community.
Kick off the morning with a pancake breakfast at École la Mission before heading to Rotary Park, where kids and parents can have a blast with face painting, crafts, games, inflatable playzones and a petting zoo. Celebrate Canada Day also invites everyone to a free outdoor concert and fireworks display at 11:00 p.m. Please arrive with a donation for our Food Bank.
StAT is running a FREE shuttle service around town on July 1st. Guests may choose to park their vehicles on-site at Red Willow Trail or nearby at the St. Albert Centre’s Park ‘n Ride.
