10 tips for Canada Day Spectator Success

Be EARLY -  parking lots are limited and fill up fast

 WALK or RIDE - you won’t be able to get a vehicle too close to 100 Street/Centennial Park

Save your spot on the sidewalk - not the road. Bring your lawn chair

Be aware of road closures -  they have changed from last year. You will not be able to go your regular route.

Be patient & polite - people running the barricades are VOLUNTEERS

Obey ALL signs - and orders from traffic control and barricade volunteers

Be sun smart and stay hydrated - Save on Foods will be on site providing FREE water

If you’re leaving town for the weekend, leave Friday night or EARLY Saturday morning-  Our road closures will affect regular routes as early as 8:00am on Saturday.

Stay informed -  Follow the the City of FSJ Recreation Page (and the Canada Day event page), listen to the radio, call us if you have questions and keep checking the website fortstjohn.ca/Canada-day-celebrations for all the information you need for a successful day

 HAVE FUN! It is a holiday after all!
