Every year huge crowds flock to the tiny, charming village of Priceville to catch up with friends and neighbours, listen to talented local musicians and dig in to “country fair-style” snacks and beverages…and to witness the best fireworks display around!!  Ok, I might be a little biased, having been involved with the Priceville Improvement Committee’s Canada Day celebrations for more than 10 years 😉  Activities and music starting at 6 p.m. at Stothart Hall (Priceville Baseball Diamond) Community Park.  Hot dogs, snacks and drinks all $1 each.  Bring your own lawn chair or blanket and arrive early as the fields fill up quickly!  Admission by donation.  I’ll be manning one of the BBQs, come on over to say hello!
