Two days to go, two days to go....yeah, hey, hey ... only two days to Canada Day!

So... before the fun starts there are just a couple of reminders to help the day go smoother...

SCHEDULE: 4:00 Children’s Festival and on-stage entertainment begins 5:00 Dogs ‘n’ burgers, and seafood pasta concessions open up 7:30 Delectable Decorated Cake Contest 10:30 Fireworks.

- This is an alcohol free event.
- Park gates must be locked by 11 p.m.; please schedule after parties elsewhere.
- For the comfort of your pets, please leave them at home.

DRIVING / PARKING: Please help us minimize traffic congestion: carpool, bike, use shuttles, or park on Heriot Bay Road. Top parking lot is reserved for service vehicles / volunteers with equipment. Other vehicles park along Spit Road, facing the exit (park gates). Shuttle for handicapped will be available after fireworks; users sign up with shuttle drivers on the ride in. After 8 pm all vehicles will be turned around by the boat-ramp.

BOATERS: For safety, please keep a 300 foot radius clear of the fireworks barge, and for consideration of viewers, do not come between the barge and the Spit shore. The Coast guard will be monitoring the waters.

See you there!
