Canada Day is always a special day for us Canadians and has become a bigger celebration in Kamloops at Riverside Park over the years. It attracts thousands of us that come to see the artists of the area and the food vendors as well as plenty of entertainment.

|Crowds and more crowds
|Kids bouncy castle fun
There is a nice playground for the youngsters in the park but for this special day, they offer plenty of extras like this bouncy castle shown here. No shortage of lineups of kids waiting to get into it and have their turn at fun. Patience applies in several areas of the Park today, lineups are long.

The cap off for the whole evening was the fantastic fireworks, but no photos for it, never been good at night shots, lol. We’d been down to the festivities twice and just weren’t going for a third visit, too late for us old folks. Sorry we missed it but we heard from several that it was incredible.
There are more photos of Riverside Park on my blog showing quieter times. Click here to see that.
