Country’s 150th birthday to be celebrated in style in Terrace, B.C.

There’s even an Anne of Green Gables production

THERE’S no reason to stay at home July 1 in Terrace, B.C. as there’s a full menu available to help celebrate the country’s 150th birthday.

The annual Canada Day firefighters’ pancake breakfast is 8-11 a.m. at the Terrace fire hall.

The cost is $5 per person with proceeds going to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.

You can also enjoy a matinee of the Carmen Arts Group’s “Anne of Green Gables: the Musical” at the Terrace Pentecostal Church. Tickets at Misty River Books.

Heritage Park Museum is the place to be beginning at 11 a.m. with live music and dancing, multicultural food vendors, historic demonstrations, art exhibitions, children’s activities, silent auction, and much, much more. This event lasts until 4 p.m.

This takes place rain or shine. Admission free or by donation.

With July 1 being a Saturday, the Skeena Valley Farmers Market is being held. There’s much to see and enjoy thanks to live music.

The City of Terrace is also holding events there and there’s also a volleyball tournament.

And to top off the weekend, there is a rededication of the chapel at Usk which takes place noon July 2 to note its 50th anniversary.\

A barbecue hosted by the Terrace Christian Reformed Church follows. And there will also be a cake! The chapel is located at Usk, east of Terrace on Hwy16.
