As Canada Day approaches, Cold Lake is buzzing with anticipation for the grand celebrations set to take place on July 1st. This year’s festivities promise a day full of fun, music, and fireworks, bringing together residents and visitors to honour Canada’s 157th birthday.

The day starts with the much-loved Canada Day Parade in Cold Lake North at 10 AM. Following the parade, the excitement continues with an opening ceremony featuring a CF18 flyby at 11 AM. Also on the schedule is the Vendor Alley market, family-friendly fun including bounce houses, face painting and more.

For those looking to quench their thirst, a Beer Garden will be open from 4 PM until 11 PM. Featured events this year include a reptile show, a performance from the Kehewin Native Dance Theatre, and the Double Vision Magic Show. Prior to headliner Cory Marks’ performance at 8 PM, the Main Street Band performs at 6 PM.  

As the sun sets, the excitement builds for the grand finale of the day’s celebrations. At 11 PM, a spectacular fireworks display will light up the Cold Lake sky, courtesy of KNOCS Industries. 

The city has announced that transit services for the day will be operating from 9 AM to midnight and will feature a change of route to accommodate the celebration. All events and music take place at Kinosoo Beach and, apart from purchases at the Vendor Alley and Beer Garden, are free.
