In the field area, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., families can check out bouncy castles, crafts, carnival games and recreational games. Barbecue and food vendors will be available from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., provided by Delta Ministries, the North Delta Lions and M&M Specialty Drinks.

The formal welcome takes place on the main stage at 5:30 p.m., followed by a performance by Curtis Braun, “The Science Guy.” Opening ceremonies, and the cake cutting, take place at 6 p.m. sharp. Live performances from Wills Jams, Shan E Punjab Arts Club and the March Hare Band then take the stage.

The evening culminates in the fireworks at 10 p.m.

The City of Delta is also hosting celebrations at Diefenbaker Park, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Kirkland House from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, go to delta.ca.
