Canada Day Picnic in the Park

Our tradition of hosting a picnic in the park is alive and well.

Please bring your friends and family with you to 2130 Radford court at the Beacon Hill Community Centre (behind the white church on Ogilvie road) for music and fun, along with singing O Canada at noon with a giant Canadian flag.

Did we mention we’re bringing a big bouncy castle as well?

Special guest Councillor Tim Tierney will be there serving up free hot dogs from 11:30 until we run out!

It will be all kinds of family fun!



We will be launching over 150 (get it?) fireworks, when we normally launch 100-ish.

This will be our biggest show ever. And it starts at 9:30pm. We’ll have fun things before that, but we launch at 9:30.

We’ll bring the music, the bouncy castle, and the show. You bring your family, friends, some lawn chairs and a donation.

A quick story: Last year our fireworks show on Canada Day had to be postponed until July 2 due to rain. We received so many compliments for having it on July 2nd because it allowed people who wanted to visit The Hill the opportunity while also allowing them to participate in our community event.

The moral? We’re trying it on July 2nd on purpose this time.

Let us know what you think of this decision for next year by voting at:

Please consider bringing a donation to the show (or donating at www.BHCA.ca) as your donations allow us to continue putting on fun, community-based fireworks shows like this (very) expensive one.


As mentioned in an earlier article, the Beacon Hill Community Association puts on the Canada Picnic in the Park, and our Fireworks Show at great expense. We can only do this thanks to (in large part) generous donations from members of our community like you, and a few corporate donations (shout out to Action Martial Arts!).

We NEED you to donate either at our events (we will be visible, as well as announce who we are over the PA system), or online at www.BHCA.ca using PayPal.

If you enjoy the show, please consider how much it was worth it to you to have a local, yet immensely impressive, fireworks show and drop that amount into our donations cans (or as stated earlier, online via PayPal).

Celebrate Summer 2017

What a great fair we had this year!

Thank you to all the volunteers, Councillor Tim Tierney, and everyone who attended. You made this year’s Celebrate Summer the best.
