Canada Day events are popular ways to celebrate Canada’s birthday, with food stands,
fireworks and rodeos. This year, events are going to be over the top because we’ve hit 150! Plan on attending Canada Day in South Junction on
June 30th at 8:30 pm with local entertainment and fireworks! Then wake up bright and early for Vita’s Canada Day parade on July 1st. There will be kid’s activities, rodeo and much more!
The RM of Stuartburn is holding a yard decorating contest for Canada Day this year! Deck those flowerbeds and hang your flags for cash prizes! To register your lawn call: 425-3218 or email: email@example.com
Celebrate with a full stomach by trying out some authentic Canadian recipes! Get your mouth watering with some homemade poutine or lobster mac n’ cheese. Use ingredients like pure maple syrup, bacon and beer!
There’s nothing more celebratory than learning about our history. The Sprague and District Museum has an informative display on Canada and the RM of Piney’s role in the last 150 years. To learn more about Ukrainian culture in Canada, visit the Gardenton
Ukrainian Museum. Canada is rich in culture and heritage. Learn your local history!
On Saturday the Susydka dancers from Vita twirled and clicked their heels at their annual recital.
The Susydka Ukrainian Dance Club has come a long way in the last five years, winning awards and gold medals in Ukrainian dancing under their talented instructor from Ukraine. The dancers show off their pride for Ukrainian culture through their graceful arms, strong footwork and brilliant smiles.
The afternoon featured traditional dances from the Poltava, Transcarpathian and Bukovynian regions as well as fun character dances like ‘The Gossiping Babas’ and a dance featuring sibling rivalry over a tambourine.
Susydka performs at many other venues throughout the year, including the Folklorama Kiev Pavilion and the Gardenton Festival. Keep your eyes open for your talented local dance club!
