2020 Bath Canada Day

THE COUNTDOWN HAS STARTED!  ONLY 4 1/2 MONTHS TILL WE CELEBRATE OUR NATIONAL HOLIDAY.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT US, READ ON

The mandate of the Bath Canada Day Committee is to provide the residents of Bath and Loyalist Township with a day to celebrate our history and our community, reconnect with friends and family and welcome visitors. We strive to showcase our historical roots, to provide a day of family friendly activities, and to celebrate individuals and groups who make our community a better place to live, work, learn and play.

Volunteer and financial support from individuals, businesses and service groups ensures that a wide range of family-friendly programs are offered on Canada Day and that cost is not a barrier to participation. As of February 14th, 2020 visitors can take part in the following. The list is not complete;come back for updates.

  • Demonstrations: Tai Chi and square dancing demonstrations,
  • Free balloon creations, Face painting is available for a fee
  • Age appropriate games for little ones and inflatable soccer, darts and bumper balls for the older ones
  • Milking Maple the Cow
  • Dressing up in period costume for a photo-op
  • Cooling off in the firemen’s foam
  • Horse drawn wagon rides
  • Live music by Bon Evans and the ToneKats
  • Parade.
  • The official ceremonies include the singing of O, Canada and the raising of the flag. Both are done by young people, winners of two children’s contests. Various dignitaries bring greetings and a local volunteer is awarded the Parade Grand Marshall trophy in recognition of his/her longstanding contributions to the community.
  • A vendors market showcases the talents of local artisans.

 

The day ends with a spectacular fireworks display that attracts thousands of people of all ages.

The Great Decorate – So Much Fun

The Great Decorate

  • We supplied the decorations
  • You brought the scissors
  • We all had a great time! See you next year.

 

 

Historical Costume Workshop

Many thanks to Debbie Lovegrove and Grace Partridge, members of the Historical Costume Club of Kingston

On April 25th they provided an informative and supportive workshop for ladies looking to dress up for the 2019 celebrations. From pattern choices and alterations, trying on petticoats and hoops, making hats and learning about the styles of a bygone era, everyone had fun. They will also help folks going forward as needed.

 

Because of the flooding in Centennial Park, all of the activities that would normally have taken place there on Canada Day moved to Church Street next to the Fire Station

  • Vendor’s Market
  • Live Entertainment
  • Horse Drawn Wagon Rides
  • Firemen’s Foam a.k.a Bath Bubbles
  • Official Ceremonies
  • Welcome Booth
  • Displays etc.will be moving to the Park behind the Pickleball/Tennis Courts on Church Street.
