SuperDogs, Cake Cutting and more at the 2016 Canada Day Celebration

June 28, 2016   ·   0 Comments

This Friday, Canadians across the nation will be celebrating the country’s 149th birthday, recognising the July 1, 1867, joining of the British North American Colonies, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces called the Dominion of Canada.

In true Canadian style, many of these celebrations will be community oriented, encouraging friends, family, and neighbours to attend local events. The Town of Orangeville will be hosting their annual Canada Day celebration at the Alder Street Recreation Centre, promising even more excitement this year.

The event will feature a performance by The President’s Choice SuperDogs, called HOLLYWOOF. The production is described as a cross between a Broadway hit and a major sporting event, and marks the latest in the SuperDogs ‘larger than life’ productions.

“Audiences will_SLP3256 watch and cheer as the SuperDogs jump like superheroes, dance like superstars, save the galaxy in the Star Wars Challenge, help a volunteer from the audience do some hilarious detective work, and so much more,” wrote the Town of Orangeville in a Press Release this morning.

Each performance will be 45 minutes long, running at 12:30, 2 and 3:30 p.m. in the red rink at the Alder Street Recreation Centre, and seating will be limited to capacity.

Other entertainment throughout the day will include inflatable activities, face painting, free family swims, and more. The celebration will run from 12-5 p.m., with the Opening Ceremony and cake cutting to be held at noon.

Free family swims will be offered from 1-2 and 3-4 p.m.

Of course, you can’t forget the greatest Canada Day tradition of all, fireworks! Orangeville’s skyline will light up with bright explosions of colour at 10 p.m. as fireworks are set off over Island Lake.
