Canada Day in Riverside South

Riverside South Canada Day Celebration 2014

Canada DayThe Canada Day 2014 Celebration in Riverside South is coming soon and it is an event not to be missed! The extra room at Claudette Cain Park and the continued involvement from local businesses has allowed us to expand the event with even more entertainment and amenities!
The community's premier summer event is hosted by the Riverside South Community Association, marking the 12th year the association has hosted the annual celebration.
Tuesday July 1st, 10:00am to 2:00pm at Claudette Cain Park
Exciting new event this year!  GEO RACE Scavenger HuntGeo Race is teaming up with the Riverside South Community Association to bring you the Claudette Cain Canada Day Geo Race Scavenger Hunt. Using your iPhone you will navigate through a series of checkpoints, brain teasers and fun questions. Careful! Every wrong answer will give you a 2 minute penalty.
