Eckville celebrated Canada’s 152nd birthday on a chilly July 1.
Majority of the activities at the Town’s Canada Day celebration had to be moved indoors due to cold temperatures, rain and wind.
A DJ, face painting, the sand pile money search, entertainment by The JoeShow, as well as hot dogs and cake were all moved inside the Eckville arena.
MLA Jason Nixon and Lacombe County Councillor Dana Kreil were in attendance to partake in the singing of “O Canada” and the Reaffirmation of Citizenship ceremony.
The Rec Board screened “Dumbo” for the family movie.
Despite the weather the Eckville Fire Department braved the cold to let kids try out the hoses on the trucks and to set off the fireworks display.
