Fernie celebrates Canada's 145th

By Adam R. MacDonald

 

Fernieites of all ages rang in Canada's 145th birthday with festivities at Prentice Park.

To begin this year's celebration, Mackenzie Mosteller sang the national anthem. Then, after a bike and pet parade, residents were treated to cake served by Mayor Mary Giuliano and Fernie Council. Participants also enjoyed face painting, crafts, treasure hunting, and a variety of other entertainment and performances  throughout the day, which ended with a colourful display of fireworks.
