Exeter plans big Canada Day celebrations, July 1
From its humble beginnings in 1992, Canada Day celebrations in South Huron have grown steadily and this year, organizers will celebrate 26 years with a very busy day to mark Canada’s 151st anniversary.
Over 30 different events are planned for July 1 all across town in Exeter, organized by many different area clubs and groups – the full day ending with a magnificent fireworks display over the town’s baseball diamonds.
Kids can enjoy the Exeter Splash Zone at MacNaughton Park, while adults enjoy a car show at Canadian Tire. The South Huron Secondary School’s Jazz Combo and Old Soul Collective bands will perform at the high school. Elsewhere there’ll be face-painting, inflatables, food booths hosted by the Exeter Lions Club and Dashwood Optimists, swimming, archery, a roast beef dinner and a musical performance by the Whiskey Soaked Beavers beginning at 7:30 p.m.
