Canada’s Sesquicentennial!

Canada’s what?

July 1st marks Canada’s 150th Birthday. And, along with the rest of the country, we’re joining the celebration. Come join Water’s Edge on an adventure across the lake to Lucien Lake Regional Park (who also happens to be celebrating their 90th Anniversary) for their Sports Day. As per tradition, the major event happening at the park is their Ball Tournament. If you’re not already playing, we encourage you rehearse your best rendition of Take Me Out to the Ball Game, pack some sunflower seeds, and snag a seat on the bleachers for some high-flying entertainment. If you’re lucky you might even earn a tip for returning a fly ball.

In the morning, send your children to the beach for the organized coin dig and see if they can make you rich.

For lunch, grab a bite to-go at Stormy’s Concession and eat, with a view, on one of the many picnic tables by the shore. Then, when you start craving dessert, go visit the lovely ladies at the Pie Booth and see if you can pick just one flavor of homemade pie (you can’t). We also understand that throughout the day you might find yourself in need of a refreshing drink. The Three Lakes 4-H Club has got you covered with their booth of many flavoured pops. But, if you were thinking of something a little more ‘mature,’ the Lions Booth has their Beer Gardens running all day. Speaking of the Lions Booth, they conclude the evening with some musical talent and more ‘mature’ drinks.

If you have plans to stay the weekend, the Pioneer Pub and Grill (Middle Lake Hotel) will be hosting their 2nd Annual Canada Day Cabaret. This 19+ event is a crowd pleaser with its live tunes and fun prizes. If you don’t want the fun to end, check out this list of 150 things to do in Three Lakes!

So, come join us. After all, it’s not very often you get to celebrate a 150th birthday.
