Shawville and Thorne Canada Day celebrations

July 1, 2019
The Canada Day festivities in Shawville kicked off on Friday night with the annual Soapbox Derby, put on by Shawville-Clarendon Fire Department. Dozens of would-be Jeff Gordon’s packed the hill at the top of Victoria Street for their chance to race to the bottom in head-to-head competition.
The rest of the party came at the end of the weekend, with the local Lions Club hosting their annual pancake breakfast at the Hall. There was action for most of the afternoon at the fairgrounds, with a horse-pull competition in the outdoor ring and plenty of food on site. At one p.m. the parade made its way down Main Street between a sizable crowd that lined both sidewalks, all the way to the Fairgrounds.
