The Canada Day 2013 Celebration in Riverside South is less than a week away and it is an event not to be missed! The move to Claudette Cain Park last year was a tremendous hit, and the extra room has allowed us to expand the event with even more entertainment and amenities!
The community's premier summer event is hosted by the Riverside South Community Association, marking the 11th year the association has hosted the annual celebration.

In addition, there will be numerous rides and games by Tribeck Inflatables for all to enjoy, a Storytime Tent by I Sign You Sign Learning Academy, and a Miniature Train Ride for kids!
We also hope the Fire truck wonít be busy and will pay us a visit at some point during the event.
