Several Canada Day activities are coming to Orangeville on July 1 for families to enjoy. 

The day will feature various forms of entertainment at the Alder Recreation Centre, a concert at Island Lake and fireworks to cap off the day’s festivities.

“Canada Day provides an opportunity to celebrate our home and reflect on our nation’s history,” said Mayor Lisa Post. “It’s also an opportunity to acknowledge the work that has been done, and the work yet to be done, on Canada’s journey towards reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Orangeville is a diverse, welcoming, inclusive community and I hope residents will join me in reflection and celebration this Canada Day.”

Orangeville’s Canada Day event will take place at the Alder Recreation Centre from 12 to 5 p.m. and will wrap up with evening activities at Island Lake Conservation Area.

Opening ceremonies are at noon, at which time there will be greetings from Orangeville Mayor Lisa Post and council, Dufferin–Caledon MP Kyle Seeback and Dufferin–Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones.

The greetings will be followed by a cake cutting. 

In the red rink of the Alder Recreation Centre, there will be Global Pet Foods’ Superdogs Main Stage Entertainment, featuring a 30-minute dog show and 10 minute “Pat n’ Chat.”

Come for 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. to enjoy the action.

The green rink at the Alder Recreation Centre will feature a Family Fun Zone with inflatables from noon to 5 p.m.

This area will feature a 26 ft. rock wall, 28 ft. king croc slide, 65 ft. mega obstacle course and bouncy castles. There will also be the Neighbourhood Block Box, face painting, a professional photo booth and B Social Cafe Food Services if attendees of the Canada Day need a bite to eat.
