Join us for the 2013 YMM Canada Day celebrations June 30 & July 1 at the Clearwater School Field on Hardin Street!
Starting June 30, Nexen CanadaROCKS 2013 will feature two-nights of stellar local, national and international talent to our region. Simple Plan headlines the night, with support from multi-award winning indie folk musician, Dan Mangan. From British Columbia, deejays Honeybee and Robbie Lovdub will be spinning fresh and funky west coast beats to get the party started when gates open at 4 PM, followed by popular local band, Friends of Jack, and other supporting acts.
Following the concert, the Syncrude Fireworks Spectacular show will amaze residents with a choreographed display of one of the best fireworks shows in Canada.
Residents can view the fireworks from the Clearwater School Field, or almost anywhere in the downtown core. The fireworks will be shot off from the Sandy Point of the Snye.
To continue the celebrations, the annual Canada Day parade will kick off July 1 for a FREE day of events sponsored by Legacy Dodge. The parade will start on Riedel Street, going through Franklin Avenue and finishing on Morrison Street. Right after the parade, activities for the entire family will be open to the public at the Clearwater School Field.
Local roving entertainers, coordinated by Eye Flower Productions, will be performing throughout the day while residents take part in a Teddy Bear Picnic, track & field style games and much more! Diverse cultural local and national talents will be taking the stage throughout the day.
Day two of Nexen CanadaROCKS will expose residents to the local talent we have in our backyard, as well as some fantastic national musicians, including Canadian Idol Runner-up, JayDee Bixby.
The Wood Buffalo Brewing Co. is the festival food and beverage partner. We’ll be posting the menus soon!
The first night of music and fun will cost residents only $65 and can be purchased at the Keyano Box Office, while the second day of music and entertainment will be FREE to the public!
So bring down the family, gather up your friends, and tell your co-workers you’ll meet them at the YMM Canada Day Festival. Enjoy some delicious food and a fantastic weekend of music and fun as we celebrate Canada’s Birthday, Wood Buffalo style!
