Canada Day at Redwood Meadows

Canada Day is always a great event in the Redwood Meadows community.  Due to enthusiasm, organization and efforts of the small army of volunteers a super fun day is created.  From the bike parade led by the Redwood Meadows Fire Department, the entertainment on the outdoor stage, the adults tea party in the shade and all of the great children’s activities (face painting, bouncy castles, slip and slide and more) to the fireworks at the end of the day – they were all fantastic.

Our children had a great time down on the grounds and I wasn’t far behind.  The weather cooperated, after a nasty hailstorm the night before, so I have a bit of a sunburn to show for my time listening to music and watching the kids play.

The fireworks are always good and I think they were really great this year.  They started at 11pm under a still fairly bright sky.  We sat facing northwest so I enjoyed having that element to frame the explosions against.  A great day and we were all worn out at the end.  Thank you to everyone who made this happen!  Happy Canada Day!

  4. I enjoy how the smaller communities get into Canada Day and other events, makes me proud of my country. is that your son on the slide/great shot, though it makes my knees cry out in sympathy. I love the shot with the fireman-not sure who is having more fun in that photo-him or the kids. Good description of a fun day and evening.
