Show your Canada Day spirit

Although our traditional Canada Day plans are cancelled this year, that does not mean we cannot still celebrate all things Canada, according to a press release from the City.

From social circle barbecues to patriotic lawn décor, join in on the fun by sharing how you are celebrating Canada Day the 2020 way.

You could be featured in a Canada Day video compilation the municipality is putting together. Throughout the week, show us how you plan to celebrate Canada Day and take part in the three ways to show how we are all #KawarthaLakesStrong:

  1. Oh Canada sing-a-long: Video your family singing Oh Canada by a local landmark, on a lake or in a boat, at your favourite patio, your home or anywhere it is safe to do so.
  2. Decorating kit: Sign up by June 28 for a kit of 50 miniature Canadian flags to decorate your yard, porch, storefront, bicycle or even yourself! Kits will be delivered to your home or business while supplies last.
  3. Show your spirit: Post photos and videos to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and include the #KawarthaLakesStrong hashtag.

To sign up for a kit and to upload your photos and videos, please visit Kawartha Lakes Canada Day. The video will be posted on the City of Kawartha Lakes’ channels and participating media outlets on July 1, so you can watch and share it on Canada Day.

Another exciting part of Canada Day 2020 is a temporary art installation project that’s being produced by artists across Kawartha Lakes in cooperation with the Kawartha Arts Gallery and the Kawartha Arts Network. These works of art will be made from miniature Canadian flags.

The Kawartha Arts Network Inc. is a not-for-profit artists’ co-operative that finds opportunities for members to share their work with the public throughout the Kawartha Lakes and beyond.

The Kawartha Art Gallery is dedicated to fostering awareness, enhancement and enjoyment of the Arts through its collections, exhibitions and programming for the benefit of the citizens of the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The gallery provides a venue to foster and promote the artistic interests of all citizens. They are not just a gallery, but a community service — accessible to all, advocating for artists, educating our youth and so much more.
