Canada Day, Terrace, 2010 begins at the Terrace Firehall for the Annual Canada Day Professional Firefighters pancake breakfast. It begins at 7:30 am at the Firehall Engine Garage on Park Avenue at Eby Street and runs through to 11:30 am.
To raise money for the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund they will be charging $5 per person. It is free for ages 3 and under. The value is incredible as the meal includes; pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, juice & coffee. 100% of this has been donated by local community businesses.
Fire truck rides will be held at the mall parking lot from 9 am - 12 noon and the new Fire Engine will be on display. There will be face painting; the Terrace Community Band will be performing and much more will be happening.
The Terrace Volunteer Association, as always, will helping out. Also in attendance will be the Thornhill Volunteer Fire Department, the Terrace Search & Rescue, the RCMP, the BC Ambulance Service and others.
Following the Terrace Emergency Services and protection organizations celebrations, the party moves up to the Heritage Museum Park near Terraceview Lodge at the top of the Kalum Street Hill (4702 Kerby Ave).
It is Canada's 143rd birthday and the Heritage Park Museum will be ripe with entertainment. There will be live entertainment, a BBQ, cake, games, a silent auction and pony rides by the North West Therapeutic Equestrian Association (NWTEA). Admission to the Park is by donation though the pony rides will require a small fee.
