Canada Day celebrations in Terrace

Community turns out for 20th annual pancake breakfast and Heritage Park events

This year’s rainy Canada Day didn’t stop residents from getting out to the Terrace Fire Hall and Heritage Park celebrations on July 1.

Over 800 people were served at the 20th annual pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., hosted by Terrace firefighters, who were raising funds for the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund in aid of burn victims. The Thornhill department also showed off their ladder truck during the fundraiser, which raised just over $4,000 this year.

The community was then invited to attend the Canada Day celebrations at Heritage Park from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and featured local artists, food vendors, pony rides, a photo booth and live music from local bands.

Photos from the events are below:
