Saturday July 1st, 11:00 AM- 3:30 PM
The annual Pemberton Heights Canada Day Parade and Picnic is July 1st at Sowden Park in Pemberton Heights, and we’re planning for another memorable event! This is a hugely popular annual community celebration, with friends, family and neighbours from Pemberton Heights and beyond in attendance. Residents and non-residents alike are welcome, so please bring your family, friends and neighbours to celebrate Canada’s birthday.
Schedule of Events
11:00 AM : Parade Starts
The parade leaves from the Pemberton Heights Community Hall (old United Church) heading for Sowden Park. Everyone is welcome to join, so please wear your best red and white and your running shoes, and decorate your bike, scooter, skateboard or trike.
11:30 AM: Picnic at Sowden Park
Bring your own picnic or buy your lunch at the park! All profits from the BBQ and concession go back to the Pemberton Heights community.
Please be environmentally responsible. Pick up your litter and minimize plastic waste by bringing your own refillable water bottle. There are free fresh water refill taps available at the park.

Races start with an Oh Canada sing-along. Enjoy sack races, tug-of-war, wheelbarrow races and other fun for all ages!
