The City of Cold Lake would like to remind residents that it will not be hosting any formal Canada Day festivities this year, including the parade, beach activities, concert, and fireworks show.
“All of these events have a tendency to bring out thousands of people,” said Mayor Craig Copeland. “While we are all going to miss these celebrations, we are following the Province of Alberta’s recommendations. With encouraged physical distancing of two metres, and a limit of 100 people at outdoor events, we just couldn’t see a way to proceed with our celebrations and still follow these guidelines.”
Although there are no official celebrations, Kinosoo Beach is open to the public, so long as users can keep proper physical distancing. Other summer activities are also possible, as the sports fields, slo-pitch diamonds, skate park, trails, and other outdoor facilities are currently open.
