For the first time since it’s rebirth, Morinville’s Canada Day celebrations ended with a display of fireworks.

Chloe Tremblay could not decide between the choice of two cakes at the family Canada Day Barbecue and Silent Auction held at the Gazebo in Legal Monday. Hosted by the Legal’s Pink Trail, the event included more than 70 items up for bid in the silent auction, children’s entertainment, balloons, beef on a bun, hot dogs, cake and treats. More than 150 people showed up for the event. Proceeds from the barbecue and silent auction to the Wild Pink Yonder towards raising Breast Cancer Awareness. – Lucie Roy Photo

  1. Looks like The Morinville Historical and Cultural Society did an amazing job again celebrating Canada Day. Unfortunately I missed it as we are on holidays.
