Ocean Park to host morning, evening events for Canada’s 150th

‘An opportunity to celebrate together’

With Canada Day just two weeks away, Ocean Park Community Association is inviting the community to start and end their day at the Ocean Park Hall.

“We realize there are many Canada Day activities this year, so we thought let’s give our community an option to start or finish their Canada Day with us,“ OPCA president Jane Hayes said in a news release.

Free morning festivities (from 10 a.m. till noon) are to include a stampede-style pancake breakfast and provincial trivia games. Those planning to attend are encouraged to come dressed representing their landed or birth province; prizes will be awarded.

Tickets are available at canadadaybreakfast.eventbrite.ca

The evening fun is to get underway at 8 p.m., with rock ’n roll band The Retrogrades playing hits from the last 40 years.

Tickets to that event are $20 and available at canadadayretrogrades.eventbrite.ca

“Canada’s 150th Birthday is a big deal and we want to make sure we provide the community an opportunity to celebrate together,” Hayes said. “I think we’ve created two events that will suit both ends of the community spectrum.”

Ocean Park Hall is located at 1577 128 St.
