Morinville – The Morinville Historical and Cultural Society, together with local volunteers, once again put on Canada Day celebrations in St. Jean Baptiste Park. Overcast weather and a light rain did not prevent a display of true patriot love. In addition to the raising of the flag and the singing of the national anthem, the formal portion of the day’s events included a simulated 21-gun salute using pyrotechnics, and the cutting of the Canada Day cakes. Children’s games and live entertainment rounded out the family-focused day.
