FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE       

2020 CANADA DAY CELEBRATIONS AT BEAVER CREEK PARK AND GYRO PARK CANCELLED

TRAIL, BC – Due to the social gathering restrictions and BC Park closures currently in place for COVID-19 prevention, the Canada Day celebration committee has made the decision to cancel this year’s event scheduled for Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at Beaver Creek Provincial Park and Gyro Park.

“We understand the cancellation of this event is very disappointing,” said Wayne Hodgson of the Trail Kiwanis Club and Chair of the Canada Day Celebration Committee. “Celebrating Canada Day is very important to all of us, but we will take no chances of hosting an event during the pandemic. We look forward to resuming the event in 2021.”

The Canada Day celebrations usually include an array of family-friendly activities at Beaver Creek Provincial Park and fireworks at the City of Trail’s Gyro Park, organized by the Trail Kiwanis Club, Trail Parks and Recreation, local community groups, and many volunteers. “Although we’ve cancelled the activities and fireworks, we do encourage everyone to acknowledge and celebrate Canada Day with members of their household,” said Hodgson. “It’s still important to show our appreciation for this day and celebrate our patriotism.”

“Although we can’t celebrate Canada Day in a social gathering environment, we recognize that July 1st is a significant date for Canadians everywhere,” said Mayor Lisa Pasin. “The City of Trail will schedule the Victoria Street Bridge lights to shine red in honour of the holiday, and we thank all community members for their commitment to stay at home and protect our community from the spread of COVID-19.”

More information on City closures and COVID-19 prevention is available at www.trail.ca/COVID-19.
