A friend and I planned ahead of time and packed a few supplies so all of the kids could decorate their bikes the day beforehand. On Canada Day the kids got on their bikes, proudly sang O'Canada, and then did a parade on bikes around the campground. We even packed candy to throw for the kids! Other tourists that were camping there came out to watch, take photos, and a few even ran back to their camper to find their own treats to give out to the kids.
The day before we also gave the kids a bunch of empty boxes, containers, tape, and other random items and as teams they created boats. A big group of us packed up for the rest of the day and went down the lake to a beach and creek. We had a big weenie roast and the kids got to race their boats in the creek. The kids played in the mud, went swimming, and even got to do a bit of tubing! I did one round on the tube and was sore for two days afterwards! But it was a blast.
Then that night there were fireworks on the beach! A friend's father brought them up from BC and even with our 24 hour daylight, they were still pretty awesome. I think the entire campground turned out for it!
Thanks to all of the friends who made the day so memorable!
