Canada Day in Courtenay
Every year on Canada Day (July 01) Courtenay hosts the annual Canada Day Parade. The Parade starts at the top of 5th Street and concludes just over the bridge at Lewis Park. Canada Day however, isn’t the only day at this time when events are happening. On the days leading up to Canada day, there are many fun family events held each year in Courtenay.
We Hope you had a Great Canada Day 2015!
The events are now over for this year. The 2016 Schedule will be posted next year as soon as it is available!
Have a great summer everyone!
