Canada Day at Chilliwack’s Townsend Park

Here’s how Chilliwack is celebrating Canada’s birthday on Sunday

Townsend Park is the place to be on Sunday as Chilliwack gets set to celebrate Canada Day.

There is a whole day of activities, entertainment and action planned to help mark the country’s 151st birthday. From food trucks to fireworks, Canada Day at Townsend Park will have something for everyone.

The day starts early, with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Kiwanis Club from 8-11 a.m. at Evergreen Hall.

From there, head outside for family friendly entertainment and activities. Led by the enchanting characters from Ever After Princess Party Events, there will be music on stage, and plenty of action throughout the park. Free face painting, balloon twisting and, of course, bouncy castles will keep the party going.

As evening falls, local funny man Cliff Prang is your host. He’ll introduce a stellar line up of entertainment, including Jennifer Victor, who will lead the singing of Canada’s national anthem.

She’ll be followed by acts like Damian Marshall, Awake O Sleeper, Ryan McAllister, The Lounge Hounds and John Welsh & Los Valientes.

Capping off the evening will be a spectacular fireworks display at around 10 p.m.
