The celebration of Canyon Park’s 75th anniversary and Canada Day were combined into one big party on Tuesday, for a day of fun for the whole family.

The rural park was filled with people — nearly 400 ate breakfast there in the morning — enjoying a slo-pitch tournament, a gymkhana and kids’ craft tent, as well as a performance by the Castlegar-based classic rock band, Ruckus.
