Sidney celebrates Canada 150 with a street party

Paint the town red and white on June 24

Join the fun at this 1950s-themed street party and dance in Sidney.

Bop ’til your drop on Saturday, June 24 as the Town of Sidney hosts a street party and dance to help mark Canada’s 150th birthday.

It’s one of the first big events in the Town’s celebration of this anniversary — but by no means is it the last. In fact, it’s just getting started.

The street party combines a Birthday Party for Sidney’s 50th anniversary as a Town and a celebration of Canada’s 150th.

This is a free, family-friendly event with food trucks, children’s activities by Panorama Recreation Centre, and more.

Dance to the music of two bands: The Sutcliffes and Shaky Ground.

The Paint the Town Red & White street party is from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. along Beacon Avenue at Fourth Street.
