The Village of Killaloe is known throughout the Ottawa Valley for our Canada Day festivities!

CANADA DAY DOUBLE-DOWN

July 1, 2021

It’s that special time of year, and Canada is officially turning 153 years old! The Township of Killaloe Hagarty and Richards is proud to be putting on not ONE, but TWO equally fabulous fireworks shows in TWO different locations to celebrate the event! We will launch the fireworks at both Sheryl Boyle Park in Round Lake Centre and downtown Killaloe. All are welcome to watch the show at 10 pm on July 1st. To accommodate COVID-19 gathering restrictions and social distancing guidelines we ask that you watch the fireworks online, from your vehicles, at home, or even on your boat.

The fireworks will be live-streamed on both the Killaloe Hagarty and Richards Naturally Spirited Facebook page and the Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Instagram (@khrtownship) page.

HAPPY CANADA DAY!
