The Osgoode Village Community Association Canada Day Committee has been busy planning what it hopes will be another fantastic Canada Day celebration in Osgoode. There will be many activities for the entire family to enjoy, including a dog agility show, children’s activities, fireworks, and more! Come spend July 1st in the Village among your family, friends and neighbours…..why go anywhere else?
Donations are being accepted at many retail locations around the village. Your contribution goes to offset the costs of the fireworks, stage shows, children’s activities and many other great things we do in the village that day . We appreciate your help in supporting this community initiative because without your kind donations, many of this would not be possible so see you at Canada Day in the Village!
FREE CHILDREN’S ACTIVITIES (2:00 – 5:00 pm)
There will be lots of free children’s activities including an inflatable bouncy castle, a petting zoo and pony rides. They will all take place on the grounds outside the Stuart Holmes Arena & inside the Osgoode Community Centre. We will have balloon animals being made on site this year for the kids so pick your favorite color and animal and watch it magically be created before your eyes! Be sure to purchase a delicious piece of homemade pie sponsored by the ladies of St. James United Church and located beside the entertainment stage inside the arena in the Fred A. Alexander room.
Just A Few Catering is proud to be running the bbq and donating the proceeds to the OTHS students who will be travelling this fall.
