There’s something for everyone as Canada Day celebrations get underway on Friday.

There’s something for everyone as Canada Day celebrations get underway on Friday.

“The day starts off with a pancake breakfast at the Station Museum from 8 to 11,” Coun. Deb McIntosh said.

Mayor Lawrence Chernoff and city councillors will be serving breakfast for the hungry celebrators with live music provided by That Girl & Earl.

Activities slow down for the afternoon while city staff get ready for the evening celebrations at the Community Complex.

The Lions Club will provide hot dogs for a donation (proceeds go to the food bank) and popcorn will also be available. The Castlegar Hospice Society will be selling hamburgers and the Air Cadets will be selling cotton candy.

When it gets dark, families can snuggle up for “Rango” on a 40-foot screen on the field.

McIntosh said staff at city hall and civic works have put in “a ton” of work to make the day happen.

Also on Canada Day will be an event called Tron’s Head Bang at the Lion’s Head Pub. Starting at 11 a.m., a live band and skate sessions will be jamming all day with a four-foot mini ramp in the parking lot. All proceeds will go towards Sk8 Shoes 4 Kids in memory of Josh Evin.
