Canada Day

Virtual Canada Day 2020

Due to COVID restrictions on public gatherings and the Town of Edson budget cutbacks in response to the pandemic, we’ve taken Canada Day in a new direction this year.

The Federal Government is planning a big virtual bash to be broadcast live across the country on social media.  To kick off the National party, the Town of Edson is planning our own local virtual “opening ceremonies” to include addresses by local dignitaries.

Canada Day Celebrations will also be aired on CBC July 1st at 1:00pm and 8:00pm local time.

A map of all the decked-out participants is below so you and your family can take a tour on June 29th, 30th or July 1st.

 

Oh Canada! Canada Day 2020
