LOCAL FIREFIGHTERS are making preparations for their annual Canada Day pancake breakfast held at the fire hall.

Proceeds from the event go to a fund for burn victims maintained by professional firefighters across the province.

The food is ready beginning at 8 am and is served until 11 am.

Firefighters from Terrace and Thornhill will be taking part as will be those who work for Terrace’s other emergency services.

Canada Day events continue in Terrace beginning at 11 am at Heritage Park.

There’s a silent auction to raise money for a downtown museum.

Throughout the day, there will be live music ranging from the Copper Mountain String Band to Jonny and the Instant Soap Opera.

There will be Tsimshian and Nisga’a dance groups, birthday cake, chainsaw carving, and historical demonstrations like blacksmithing, horse logging, gold panning, and natural dyeing.

Multicultural food vendors include Redneck Kitchen, Café Zesta, Velma’s Filipino Kitchen, Kim’s Burger Bus, Nisga’a Tacos, and Mui’s Spring Rolls.

Throughout the day, there will be children’s activities such as gold panning, paper making, French finger knitting, historical scavenger hunts, sack races, face painting, balloon darts, and tug of war.
