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!
