Canada Day in Fallingbrook

Every July 1, the Fallingbrook Community Association organizes the largest volunteer-run Canada Day celebration in the country. Thousands of people attend the fair, amusement rides, games, races and entertainment during the day. At night, over 20,000 people watch the professional fireworks. This event is intended for provide a "small-town" alternative for young families who would prefer not to take their children to the show on Parliament Hill.  See us at the Ray Friel Centre, Tenth Line Road.

Committee members: George Blake, Marc Cappelli, Phil Chaput, Jim Desprey, Jocelyne Holmes, Ted Macias, Debbie Parent, Paul Pelletier, Don Pottier, Zybina Richards, Brenda Spearman, Eric Tousignant, David Villeneuve (chair).
