Canada Day Celebrations in Invermere

Saturday July 1st, 12:00pm
Invermere, British Columbia V0A1H0

Canada Day celebrations in Invermere officially begin at midnight when the skies over Invermere come alive with a huge fireworks, thanks to the local Kinsmen Club. Everyone is invited to come out and wish our country a Happy Birthday. To get a good vantage point for the fireworks display, choose one of these:

  • Make your way down to the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena early enough to get a seat on the bleachers.
  • Bring lawn chairs and blankets to James Chabot Beach
  • Watch from Lakeview Road
  • Watch from your boat on the Lake

Wherever you choose to be, just look up to the sky. It might be a show you won’t soon forget.

Just a few hours later, at 11: 00 AM, in fact, crowds line Main Street to watch the parade, with floats, clowns, sirens, music and everything that makes a typical small town parade something for the memory books.  Everyone gets involved, the costumes are colorful and even the family pets come along.  The local RCMP detachment is in full dress for this special occasion.  Fire engines are polished up too. Watch your favorite people proudly marching past in the Canada Day parade.

The Legion organizes the parade each year.  If you want to march in the parade or have a float to enter, come to Pothole Park before 9:00 AM on the big day because the judging begins sharp at 9!

The parade ends at Kinsmen Beach where the Mountain Mosaic of the Arts birthday party begins in earnest at noon.  Local performers provide continuous live entertainment on the Home Hardware outdoor stage.  Food kiosks, a Bounce Castle and face painting for the kids at the Transformation Station are all part of the festivities.  And, at 3:00 PM, wander down to the beach to watch the ever-popular Windermere Fire Department’s boat-building contest and race.

While you are enjoying the party, don’t forget to take a few minutes to browse through the Pynelogs Art Gallery to enjoy a display of the works of local artists.  Then, help yourself to birthday cake because it wouldn’t be a birthday party without cake!

The Canada Day celebration is FREE to all and there’s lots of fun for everyone in the family.
