Canada Day Celebrations (July 1, 2017)

Russell Canada Day celebrations are organized by the Russell Lions Club and the Russell Agricultural Society every year. A fun day for the whole family with great entertainment, kids games, fireworks, and more! This year we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation and this year also marks the 29th year the Russell Lions Club and the Russell Agricultural Society team up to bring you an incredible day of festivities.

Depuis plus de 29 ans chaque année les célébrations de la fête du Canada sont organisées par le Club Lions de Russell ainsi que la société de l’agriculture de Russell. Une journée en famille remplie d’activités. De l’animation pour tous, jeux pour enfants, des feux d’artifices  et plus ! Régalez-vous du déjeuner de la Fête du Canada servi par la Légion de Russell.  Du bon divertissement familial.
