St. Paul readies to celebrate Canada Day

Fireworks, Show and Shine, and the Kehewin Native Dance Theatre all part of the fun.

This year’s St. Paul Canada Day festivities are something you won’t want to miss. 

The Town of St. Paul has been putting on Canada Day events for many years, but this year will be one to remember.

The town is hosting multiple events and performances throughout the day for you and your family to attend and enjoy. All events are drop in style for all ages. All festivities, excluding the Cruiser Car Show and Shine, are from 12:00-4:00pm at the St. Paul Recreation Centre and Curling Rink.

There will be a petting zoo, bouncy castles, arts & crafts, a dunk tank, as well as market and food vendors in the Recreation Centre.

There will be a bit of magic in the air. Stop in and watch a talented magician perform. The magician will be having two 30 minute shows at 12:15pm and 2:30pm in the Curling Rink. 

“I would probably say the addition of the Kehewin Dance Theatre participating,’’ said Sarah Burton, executive assistant of the Town of St. Paul on what is new this year. “It’s another step to inclusivity.” 

The talented dance troupe that was started in 1991 and voted the 3rd favorite dance company in Alberta in 2005, will be performing a story through the art of dance in the curling rink from 1:00-2:00pm. 

Just outside the recreation center there will be vehicles of all ages. The Cruisers Car Show and Shine happening from 11:00am – 3:00pm. They will be doing Monster Truck rides all day, along with food concessions and door prizes. At the end of the show they will be giving away trophies to the best looking cars. If you are interested in registering your vehicle registration, it is at 9:00am with a $10 fee.

To end the Canada Day festivities and excitement, drive in and pull out a lawn chair to the St. Paul ball diamonds to get front row seats to the town’s annual firework show at 11:00pm Saturday evening.
