CANADA DAY 2011: Several events saluting Canada planned in Minto

MINTO - Several events celebrating Canada Day are planned throughout the Town of Minto - starting as early as this weekend.

On June 26 the Crossroads Community Church in Harriston will be hosting its annual Canada Day celebration. The free family event will include affordable food, professional face painters, puppeteers, jump houses, live  entertainment and a fantastic fireworks display at dusk.

The festivities begin at 6pm, with a rain date scheduled for July 3.

Next week, on July 1, the Knox United Church will present its 21st annual Fish Fry at the Clifford Community Hall.

The dinner, which runs from 5 to 8pm, will include Howell’s 8-ounce boneless fish and homemade desserts. The cost is $13 for adults, $6 for children aged 5 to 11, and free for kids four and under. Tickets are available at the door or in advance in Clifford at Leonard’s General Store.

Also on July 1, the Harriston Historical Society will be kicking off its display at the Harriston-Minto Heritage Gallery. The display will run until Aug. 28 at the gallery, a non-profit, volunteer-run art gallery founded in 1996 and opened in 1997. The gallery is committed to showcasing local and distant artistic talent collections, along with historical and educational displays.

On July 1 and 2, WildThings Plant Farm will offer its “Canada Day, Eh! Garden Party.” Billed as an “all-Canadian summertime bash,” the free event will feature a giant native plant sale as well as garden art, music and food. The farm is located at 9688 Baseline Road in Minto.
