Canada Day in Lethbridge is a great chance for Lethbridge, and the surrounding community, to come together for a day of FREE family fun!  The Canada Day celebrations span accross two of our City's parks, Henderson and Galt Gardens, and provide ​activities no matter your age, religion, heritage, or socio-economic status.  The day is capped off as we light up the skies with an amazing annual fireworks show at Henderson Park!

Please note that Parkside Drive will be closed from Mayor Magrath Drive to Exhibition Park.

Fireworks

The fireworks show is scheduled for 11 pm but this is weather dependent.  Any weather that puts the public at risk or creates an undesirable situation for firing fireworks may delay or cancel the show.

Alcohol

Alcohol is not permitted at any of the Canada Day events.  There is no beer garden available at either event and as such, normal rules around alcohol consumption apply - meaning that it is not allowed in public spaces such as the parks where these activities will be taking place.  Anyone witnessing this, or any other concerning activity, should report to the security or police on site. 

Family Activities

All events are considered family friendly and appropriate.  The younger children's events mainly take place at Henderson Lake Park but children and families are welcome to attend and participate in Galt Gardens events as well.

 

ATM

There will be an ATM on site at Henderson Lake.  There is no ATM available at Galt Gardens however there are numerous bank machines available across from the park and within a few blocks.

 

Volunteers

We couldn't do this without our many many volunteers!  If you'd like to help out for a few hours, or the whole event, we are always in need of people for the committee (meets year-round but infrequently) and for the day of to be roving ambassadors, help with passing out flags, ensuring parking rules are being followed, providing help in the kids' area, and more!  Please contact us at leisure@lethbridge.ca or call 403-393-9717.
