Canada Day in Revelstoke

The day will kick off with a pancake breakfast at the Revelstoke Legion from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The Canada Day Parade is going ahead after nearly being cancelled a few weeks ago, but the floats will be taking a different route this year because of construction on Mackenzie Ave.

The parade will start at 1 p.m. at the Revelstoke Courthouse before heading south and turning onto Third St.

Floats will continue down Third St. heading east through the community’s downtown before turning south onto Vernon Ave.

From there, the parade will continue south on Vernon Ave. until reaching Queen Elizabeth Park at 2 p.m.

The Canada Day Ceremony will begin shortly after the parade arrives.

Music and children’s activities will take place in the park, with local band Shoestring Necktie starting the afternoon of music at Queen Elizabeth Park at 3 p.m.

Then, Slik Nik & The Porch Hounds will grace the stage at 5:15 p.m. to close out the celebration.

The Revelstoke Rotary Club will be hosting a beer garden between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

According to the City of Revelstoke, there will be a craft table and a bouncy castle for the community’s youngest to enjoy.

RCMP Musical Ride

The RCMP Musical Ride is coming to Revelstoke on July 4 to celebrate the organization’s 150th anniversary.

“We are honoured to have been chosen to host the RCMP Musical Ride in Revelstoke and are especially excited as 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police”, said Mayor Gary Sulz in a press release. “I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this impressive show of horsemanship and I would like to thank the many individuals and organizations that made this event possible”.
