Biggest flag in town: Owner of Northern Vacuum & Sewing Centre Scott Walter hopes his new flag will be the biggest on display for Canada Day in Terrace. He found it at a garage sale and recently moored it to the roof.

Celebrate Canada Day at these family events

Start with breakfast and go from there, something for every age group

  • Jul. 1, 2015 11:00 a.m.

Happy Canada Day!

The Terrace Firefighters serve up their annual pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. until noon, or until they run out of food, at the Terrace fire hall for the 18th year.

Enjoy pancakes, bacon, sausage and eggs with all food and supplies having been donated by local businesses.

This fundraising breakfast started when a local family required assistance, and it proved to be such a great success that it became this annual event.

There is a fee to eat that goes to the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund, every penny of it.

The burn fund is dedicated to burn prevention, survivor support, recovery programs in B.C. plus provides financial assistance for the purchase of equipment, training of medical staff and operation of a Children’s Burn Survivor Camp.

Then pop up to Heritage Park Museum from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for horse and hay wagon rides, live music and dancing, multicultural food vendors, historic demonstrations ranging from blacksmithing to horse logging and gold panning, art exhibitions, children’s activities, ring toss and fish pond, chainsaw carving, face painting booth, silent auction and much, much more. Rain or shine. Admission is free or by donation.

Free cake at noon. Nisga’a Salmon barbecue. RCMP Safety Bear and the Canadian Rangers will be on site.

And get ready for a giant silent auction, the largest fundraiser for the museum with lots of awesome items, including a helicopter ride, wireless Bluetooth car speaker and a limited edition growler from Sherwood Mountain Brewhouse plus gift cards and much more.
