Big Weekend Ahead…HAPPY CANADA DAY!!

It’s almost here…one of my absolute favourite days of the year…

Proud to be canadian

I am indeed a proud Canadian.  That’s the reason I joined our town’s Canada Day Committee, and have helped to fundraise and organize the celebrations for our community.

And I must say…we put on a damned good party in honour of Canada’s birthday.

Tomorrow, our small town will be decked out in Red & White, and absolutely bursting with Canadian Pride!!  The community BBQ kicks the party off at 4 PM, followed by the parade at 7 and the flag raising ceremony down by the Ferry dock.  At 8 PM, C Kidz Kan will be presenting Little Ray’s Reptiles for the kiddos in the park.  At 10 PM, the Fireworks will be going off down at the river – the reason we work so hard to raise money is especially for this reason, to continually put on what is considered the BEST fireworks display in our area!

After that?  It’s party time.  That’s when De’Mos will take the stage in the Lions Hall, and the wild & crazy shenanigans can begin.

Can’t.friggin.wait.

It’s going to be a full weekend – on Sunday, we have a family reunion to go to, and on Monday I’m hoping to finally see Magic Mike.  You can bet that I’ll be chatting about that next week…

mmmmmmm Magic Mike….

Anyways…yes…where was I…?  OH yeah.  Canada Day! ha!

To all my fellow Canadians – do it up large!  And to my American friends who will be celebrating the 4th of July, I hope you have as much as we will be :)

HAPPY CANADA DAY!!

I figured you would be seeing Magic Mike as soon as it opened. Lots of naked hot boys in that one! Just your kind of movie. I'll be waiting to read your review.

Happy Canada Day!!! I hope you enjoy the parties! I want to see photos from this year to see your hard work! My book club is going to see Magic Mike tomorrow, but I am out of town, so I won't be able to join them *sadface*
