Canada Day in Invermere

Parade, music, and fun all day long

Make sure you get plenty of sleep on Saturday, June 29th. After that, you’re not going to want to blink and miss a moment of the Columbia Valley’s party of the summer as we ring in Canada’s anniversary with red and white pride.

The celebrations start with a bang on Sunday, June 30th at midnight. The Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley puts on a fireworks display worth staying up late for. The fireworks launch below the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena (once all the trains are safely through the area). Enjoy the view from anywhere in town. For a truly memorable experience, find a watercraft and take to the lake for a magical viewing experience – just use your boat smarts for getting safely back to shore.

Monday, July 1st is the Canada Day parade! Parade entrants will from on 9th Avenue beside Pothole park at 10 a.m. The parade starts from 5A street at 11 a.m. It marches through Main Street then down to Kinsmen Beach, with dispersal at the east end parking lot.

Oh Canada and cake cutting happens at noon, followed by live music, drumming circle with Patrick Carrick at 1:50 p.m., and a CV Arts membership draw for a guest house certificate to Tinhorn Creek Vinyards at 2:15 p.m.

The day wraps up with the kickoff to the popular summer movie series, Movies in the Mountains. Bring down your blanket and cozy up with your friends to watch the first movie of the season – the classic Mike Myers film Wayne’s World. “Party time, excellent!”

Movies start when it’s dark. Cash concession will be available.
