Canada Day Amherst

July 1

Canada Day celebrations in Amherst start with the Canada Day Run with the Amherst Striders, from the downtown Tim Hortons at 8. The opening ceremony begins at 11:30 in Victoria Square, with Canada Day cake. There will be vendors and activities in the Square, and music too with Mark McMillan Trio from noon -2. From 2-4, it’s the dynamic duo Liz and Ben. The day ends with fireworks from the Robb’s Complex at dusk. Ride your bike to the Canada Day celebrations, and check it in with a bike valet for a chance to win some swag. The town will also be holding a Best Dressed Contest. Show up in all your Canada Day fear to compete.
