Summerside set to celebrate Canada Day in a different way

SUMMERSIDE (June 11, 2020) - Canada Day in Summerside this year will take on a new look. Despite the challenging times we are all experiencing, the City of Summerside would like to use Canada Day as yet another opportunity to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in the greatest country in the world.

This year our always popular Civic Ceremony will be posted live online for all residents to enjoy for the first time in the events history. The Canada Day Civic Ceremony will be broadcasted live on YouTube at 1pm and feature the awarding of the 2020 Citizen of the Year (George Key Senior Award) and the C. Ross Mackenzie Contribution to Canada Day Award.

The City of Summerside would also like to engage with residents in showing their community and Canadian pride by taking part in our home decorating contest where residents will be encouraged to decorate their homes to celebrate everything Canadian for a chance to win amazing prizes!

Finally, our Community Services Department will be offering our first “Great Canadian Scavenger Hunt” which will encourage residents to get outside, be active and explore our city with a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

“Canada Day will certainly look different in our City than it has in past years, however we are pleased to be able to enjoy and celebrate this great City and Country on Canada Day and offer our residents unique opportunities to celebrate as well,” commented Mayor Basil Stewart.  

We encourage residents to celebrate Canada Day this year, however consider all related public health guidelines and social distancing practices.
