GEENA from the Skeena took a turn at the Heritage Park July 1 dunk tank. Her motto? 'Please do not litter. Mermaids are hither.'

Crowds celebrate Canada Day in Terrace, BC

Firefighters' breakfast and Heritage Park proved popular once again

  • Jul. 2, 2015 11:00 a.m.

Close to 1,000 people attended the July 1 pancake breakfast at the Terrace fire hall yesterday, enjoying the summer weather as well as the food.

The final count of 892 plates sold raised, after expenses, $4,241 for the professional firefighters’ burn fund.

Displays gave those waiting for breakfast a chance to learn more about local emergency services providers.

And the Terrace Community Band under the direction of Geoff Parr provided music for the listening enjoyment of those in attendance.

Canada Day festivities continued late morning and into the afternoon at Heritage Park where, again, large crowds gathered.

A Canada Day cake was cut at noon while food vendors filled orders throughout the day.

One popular spot was the dunk tank where various local celebrities, including Geena from the Skeena, were dunked.

And when local celebrities weren’t getting wet, youngsters lined up for their turn to be plunged into the cold water.

A times, there were more young volunteers in the line up to be dunked than those waiting to throw a softball to trigger the device.

An always popular offering, the silent auction held at the Heritage Park dance hall, resulted in numerous bids for a wide variety of donated items.
