Canada Day in Oxford Mills starts just before noon with the traditional Canada Flag raising and singing of O Canada at 12 sharp. All events take place at Maplewood Park. Local musicians Standby Brothers, Fiddlehead Soup, MC David Shanahan and Grenville Grass will provide the music for the day. The event will have lots of traditional kid’s games including a Tug-of-War Challenge between local schools and between the hamlets of North Grenville (talkin’ to you, Bishop’s Mills). Returning this year is the Vendors Market, face painting, birthday cake, a “Fish Tank” and a critter display/demo (spiders, snakes and lizards, oh my!). The Lion’s Club will also be back this year to sell hotdogs, hamburgers and drinks. They’ll also present the winner of their 50/50 draw at 3pm.
