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 for all the information you need for a successful day

 HAVE FUN! It is a holiday after all!
