The Morinville Historical and Cultural Society hosted their annual Canada Day in the Park event Tuesday afternoon, an event that filled St. Jean Baptiste Park with approximately 500 people who came out to celebrate Canada’s 147th birthday.
The day starts with tiny Canadian flags distributed to lawns outside residents’ homes.
