Residents and visitors are asked to once again take a different approach to activities happening around Lethbridge to celebrate our nation's birthday.
Due to the unprecedented affect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our community and the public health orders that are still in effect, there will be no fireworks or public events provided by the City of Lethbridge at Henderson Park or Galt Gardens again this year.
Instead, alternative options have once again been created to help the community celebrate and show their Canadian pride together as a city and country. Some Canada Day activities include:
- Decorating your sidewalk, home or business using a Canada Day theme. Take a photo and submit it to email@example.com by Friday, July 1 to be entered to win a prize.
- Canada Day BBQ in a bag! You can pre-order a BBQ kit by Friday, June 25 from the Interfaith Food Bank at www.interfaithfoodbank.ca or call at 403-320-8779, limited quantities available.
- Celebrate Indigenous Culture at the Yates Memorial Theatre from Sunday, June 27 to Thursday, July 1, with the Canada Day Indigenous Celebration Exhibit. Each day, a different video highlighting our Indigenous Culture can be viewed from your vehicle while tuning in through the radio for sound.
There's also an opportunity to pick up a Canada Day Activity bag full of goodies and activities from the following locations starting June 22, while supplies last:
- Lethbridge Public Libraries, Main and Crossings Branches
- Helen Schuler Nature Centre
- Yates Memorial Theatre
- Galt Museum & Archives
For those who can't pick-up a Canada Day Activity bag, the Canada Day Booklet can be downloaded from www.lethbridge.ca/CanadaDay. The 2021 Canada Day Booklet is currently being packed with Canadian-themed fun.
