Canning Village Picnic in the Park 2014

Canning’s annual Picnic in the Park, at Bruce Spicer Park on Sunday August 24, was an even greater success this year with over 300 people attending throughout the warm, sun-filled festive afternoon.

The afternoon kicked off with our very own Kings County District 1 Councillor Kim MacQuarrie welcoming all to the event and Village Crier Gary Long and his wife Sarah officially opening the Picnic. Music by the ever-popular Hilites, talented songstress and performer Samantha Power, and favourites Rewind energised the audience throughout the afternoon. Stephanie Wadden and Sarah Scott, both of Canning Recreation, animated children’s activities, which included face painting and the fish pond, and the Valley Credit Union graciously sponsored the immensely popular Bouncy Castle. We would also like to thank the Par-T-Perfect staff for the overseeing the Bouncy Castle and many thanks to magician Bob Deveau for doing the balloon creations, which all the children thoroughly enjoyed!
