Canada Day Celebrations (Vita, Manitoba & South Junction, Manitoba)

Sunrise Corner offers a number of ways to celebrate Canada Day!

This is an opportunity to gather in our communities, from coast to coast to coast, and to proudly celebrate all we have in common. It is an opportunity to celebrate our achievements, which were born in the audacious vision and shared values of our ancestors, and which are voiced in nearly all of the languages of the world through the contribution of new Canadians.

Canada Day is a time to celebrate the heritage passed down to us through the works of our authors, poets, artists and performers. It is a time to rejoice in the discoveries of our scientific researchers, in the success of our entrepreneurs, and to commemorate our history – a history in which each new chapter reveals itself to be more touching, more fascinating than the last.


Carrick Days

Carrick Days are a fun-filled event which takes place annually, in August. There is a parade and horseshoe tournament. Rainbow auction, 50-50 and lots of prize draws. Bands take the stage while you enjoy a beautiful dinner. The canteen is filled with food and drinks. Who can forget the amazing fireworks from Canfire? Spend Carrick Days with family and friends!
