Official Bath Canada Day 2018 video


Many thanks to our Entertainment Coordinator, Dave Wreggitt for the tremendous effort he put into assembling top notch musicians for our 2018 celebrations.

Dave, with help from Pam and Sean Melia, videotaped, edited and worked with Roswell Sound Studios to produce this video. We think it captures the essence of July 1st celebrations in Bath.

Big thanks to all of the volunteers, coordinators, sponsors, vendors, and musicians who made this another year to remember.
