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!

Just an FYI for all the families who intend on participating in the children’s activities during the Canada Day celebrations in Russell. In the event of rain, the children's activities will be relocated inside the arena.

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..

All topped off with the evening’s spectacular Fireworks!
