Heritage Park Museum
Join Heritage Park Museum in celebrating Canada’s 144th birthday on Friday, July first! There will be free birthday cake, children’s activities, and historical demonstrations, including horse logging, blacksmithing, and natural dyeing. Admission is by donation, with all funds going to support museum programming.
Local nine-piece folk band King Crow and the Ladies from Hell headlines the event at two p.m. Other acts include twelve-year-old singing sensation Maggy Ottenbreit, Colby Cameron, Bonnie Juniper and violin students, the Gitlaxdax Nisga'a Dancers, and other local artists. O Canada will be sung at twelve noon, and Mayor David Pernarowski will cut Canada’s birthday cake at one p.m. Jeorg Jung will demonstrate live chainsaw carving throughout the day. Until three p.m., the Northwest Therapeutic Riders Association will sell $2 tickets for pony rides. Horse-drawn hay wagons will tour passengers around the surrounding streets all day.
Kitchies and Redneck Kitchen will have barbecued food for sale, the Terrace Nisga’a Society is hosting a by-donation salmon barbecue, and the Little Blue Lunchbox will sell ice cream. At the silent auction, bid on hundreds of items from community businesses, including helicopter rides, jewelry, retail and restaurant gift certificates, and much more! Browse the historic buildings at Heritage Park to view exhibitions from Kitselas Canyon National Historic Site and local artists such as the Clay Artists of Terrace. With the support of Canadian Heritage, Heritage Park Museum welcomes people of all ages to join in the celebrations.
