The ongoing COVID situation has thrown a bit of a curveball at our regular Canada Day festivities — but there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the Parkland on July 1.

Dauphin Rail Museum
The Dauphin Rail Museum is celebrating its reopening with live music, food, and some good community fun. You can stop by for some burgers, hotdogs, Kubassa on a bun — and local singer/songwriter Ed Stozek will be providing the entertainment. 

This event runs from 11 a.m. — 3 p.m., at 101 1st Ave NW.

Classic Car Parade
If you have an appreciation for the beauty of a vintage set of wheels, you can check out the Classic Car Parade in Dauphin. The event starts with a meet and greet at 4 pm at the Dauphin Marketplace Mall, followed by a parade down Main Street.

Fire Works
The fireworks display in Laurier begins at dusk at the Laurier Campground. Everyone in attendance is asked to remain in their vehicles at all times, and must be parked 2 metres apart.

There will be Canada Day fireworks in Grandview at dusk in Wilson Park. Organizers are asking everyone to stay in their vehicles and only gather in small groups with social distancing measures in place.

Fireworks in Onanole will be done in a drive-in style at dusk near The Elk. Everyone must remain in the cars, parked 6 feet apart.

The usual fireworks display in Dauphin has been postponed this year, something organizers attribute to provincial restrictions surrounding COVID-19.

Lawrence Recreation Commission Canada Day Celebration 
Lawrence Recreation is inviting everyone to come celebrate Canada Day for a double drive-in movie night — featuring the Lion King and 21.  The price is $20 per vehicle, which includes popcorn. Please follow all public health guidelines outlined by the event organizers.

The event starts at 10 p.m. — Fireworks will be happening at intermission.
