Happy Birthday Canada!

Great day today in the Park! Check out the slideshow!

The tent proved to be a good thing for our event. The cool breeze blew through all day keeping everyone very comfortable.

From the pancake breakfast by the Parks board in the morning, BBQ lunch at noon by the Firefighters/Ambulance group, the Museum supper, to the fireworks at dark, it was a lovely day.

Youngsters of the community decorated their bikes and paraded through town behind Glen Brebner's horse drawn wagon. The wagon then gave rides for the rest of the afternoon. Thanks Glen and helpers!
An outdoor carnival of fun games and treats was a hit - especially the dunk tank!
There was a bingo for the older folks in the bright red and white tent.
There was a Show 'n Shine that displayed some vehicles proudly shown off by their owners and appreciated by those who looked them over.
The museum was open in the afternoon for all to wander though at their leisure.
Roger Emberley provided music under the tent in the afternoon and the Emberley Family (also including Linda and daughter, Karen Rutley) in the evening before the fireworks.
Two huge cakes were served - one for Canada Day and one to celebrate Oventown's 100 birthday.
And after supper the Miller Family entertained the crowd.

Thanks to everyone who made the day a success. Especially the many volunteers helping our community to celebrate our country's birthday.
