Canada Day went off with a Bang in Byron Optimist Park
Over seven thousand people gathered at Byron Optimist Park on Thursday, July 1st to enjoy the fireworks display for 2010 Canada Day Celebrations. The evening started early with a few activities on-site for the children; entertainment included face painting, balloon creations and the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier volunteers equipped with the rocks-and-rings game. The Brier volunteers on-site encouraged children of all ages to try their hands at curling while parents cheered from the side line. Crowds gathered around the curling sheet and children lined up patiently waiting to have their turn. After a game, children were decorated with temporary brier tattoos to show proof of their curling skills. The volunteers promoted the brier and encouraged parents to enter for their chance to win the grand prize draw of two Old Classic Packages to the 2011 Tim Hortons Brier. Promotions and activities were a success as children played for hours awaiting the fantastic fireworks display by the Byron Optimists Club. It was a fun way to end a beautiful day, spark more Brier buzz and celebrate Canada Day.
