Your Kemptville District Community Association (KDCA) has been working hard these past few months in anticipation of the festivities this Canada Day 2023 at Riverside Park. A thanks to our sponsors: title sponsor Myers Kemptville Chevrolet / Myers Manotick Dodge, and Fireworks sponsor Kemptville Canadian Tire as well as the support from the Municipality of North Grenville and Celebrate Canada. With their generosity, we have been able to put on quite the show this year! Rain or shine be prepared – you won’t want to miss anything!
Our family zone will be full of activity all day. In addition to the many games we set out for families to enjoy independently, we have ordered two large inflatables. There will also be Yoshi’s Juggling Show, a presentation by Spring Action Trampoline, and little ones will see the always adored Brad the Balloon Guy as he creates endless balloon animals, and families won’t need a camera to commemorate the day as our caricature artist will be creating a memorable piece of art for your walls! The afternoon for the youth wont finish there! Thanks to our heroes at Kemptville Infinity and the Kemptville Legion, the Glow Dance Party will once again be held in the Legion Hall as evening falls!
The main stage will be rocking all day again this year with our refreshment tent and stage set up to showcase The Garrison Blues Band, Three for the Show, Got Ya Covered, 2 Person Duo, and our title band whom you have seen before – the 3 Pistols! There are still a lot of time slots available for our community group colleagues to take the stage between our musical artists and speak to a captive audience about your program in the community. If you are a local business owner who would like a few minutes we can certainly see what time we have for you as well – just reach out and we will do our best to accommodate all.
Of course that isn’t all – Paws 4 Fun Agility will be showcasing their canine talents, our local vendors will be lining the park, and our food vendors are getting their skillets ready!
The Legion Breakfast will be starting off the day with a great meal and an opportunity to join friends at 8am, and Opening Ceremonies with the Legion Pipe Band will begin at 10:30.
Look for the full schedule of events next week on our social media page as well as in the NG Times! Perhaps we will have a few more things to add by then! As always, your KDCA appreciates your support on this event and we look forward to the laughter and the fun this July 1st as the Community of North Grenville comes together to celebrate!
