Canada Day in Faro

Okay, I am playing a bit of catch up on the blog here so bare with me for a few days!

Canada Day in Faro was pretty much the same as Kugluktuk. Everything that has wheels and a siren goes around town followed by kids on bikes, quads and a few trucks! Not as many quads following the parade here though, but I liked that everything in the parade was all decorated up! The parade goes all around town and then ended at the recreation complex where the amazing Bekk family (they were calling themselves the VonBekks) sang O'Canada and a very unique and catching tune they wrote about Canada. Then we all went inside for hotdogs and cake. After that on to the visitors centre for ice cream. Lots of fun!
