The virtual photo booth will be available all day on July 1.  

In the community, the Semiahmoo Arts Society and White Rock Community Policing are hosting a kids’ colouring contest.  

After 7 p.m.

Evening performances include country band The Heels, pop duo Fionn and comedy group Hilarapy. The show kicks off at 7 p.m., starting with the White Rock City Orchestra performing O Canada.

Quote

Deputy Mayor Christopher Trevelyan
City of White Rock

“Although we still need to follow Provincial health orders, on this Canada Day we can celebrate the huge progress we have made against COVID-19 as we move toward Step 3 in B.C.'s restart plan.

I encourage everyone to enjoy Canada Day safely, and to also wear orange to honour the lives lost at residential schools across our country. Let's look forward to a future Canada that is inclusive and respectful of all."
