Celebrate CANADA DAY Virtually with the FOFG

July 1 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Friends of Fort George and Parks Canada will be hosting a Virtual Canada Day celebration this year to help celebrate the 153rd anniversary of confederation.”  The Friends have also created the hashtag #CanadaDayNOTL, and hope that community members will use this hashtag to share images of how they are celebrating Canada Day this year.   “We would love to hear about your favourite aspects of Canada Day – what you will miss the most, and how you are celebrating this year in lieu of the large Canada Day festivities at Simcoe Park and Fort George,” said Amanda Gamble, executive director of the Friends of Fort George. “You can send us images through social media or by email at admin@friendsoffortgeorge.ca. We would love to see images of the cake parade, Fort George event, fireworks, etc.”  With the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Friends of Fort George will be sharing images and videos of Canada Day festivities from previous years on their website, and through their social media channels (facebook, twitter and Instagram), and are working hard to create some special content from Fort George staff and local dignitaries to help celebrate the day.  http://www.friendsoffortgeorge.ca
