Canada Day in Raymond

I live in a small town. And every year on July first the town more than doubles for the Heritage Days Celebration (Canada Day ). You get to see tons of people that you haven’t seen in forever (probably since last year). There are town activities and an amazing parade. You should see the candy haul from the parade! I thought I would share what Canada Day looks like for our family.

First off the Saturday before July first is always the Harlan Taylor Run. It has a 2km, 5km and 10km run.  There is also a Chamber of Commerce Pancake Breakfast, Softball Tournament and this year there was a Zumbathon.

This year at the street fair you could pay a coupe bucks and try to dunk the peace officers, some police men and the fire department.
