In association with The Government of Canada, The Town of Wasaga Beach invited visitors and residents to celebrate Canada and the end of summer on September 5th. First, at Stonebridge Centre, The Rolling Thunder Indigenous Dance troupe performed their drumming and dance celebrations. Next on stage, The Mike McCarthy Band from Collingwood played their Retro Music, and finally, The Desotos had people up dancing to their rocking tunes. At Beach Area One, volunteer nurses offered a Pop-Up Covid Vaccination Site with more than 150 people lining up to get their shots. Johnny Hawke sang and played his Indigenous drum, Kenn Lewis played a caribbean steel drum along with his friend, who kept rhythm on the conga drums. To wrap up this eclectic day, a celebration of fireworks lit up the night skies over Georgian Bay.
