We haven’t had a beach party since 2019 for obvious reasons, Sarah Murphy-Christopher and Jennifer Campbell have been getting back in the swing of organising this event, as they have done for several years now. The first Canada Day party was in 1995, so not including the last two years, this will be our 25th.
The day will start at noon with a bar run by our amazing group of volunteers. We will be serving alcoholic drinks – beer, coolers, etc. for $6 and non-alcoholic drinks (sodas and water for $2).
Docksiders will be set up with a bbq lunch available for a cost of $10 for burgers, hot dogs, beyond burgers and chicken burgers, $7 for mac and cheese, some caesar salad for $8 with a $6 add on if you want chicken with your salad. Although Docksiders can take cards for food, beverages are CASH ONLY.
This is and has always been a family-friendly event. It will start at noon and go to about 6 pm. We will have Canadian-themed merchandise for sale including t-shirts, towels, glasses, etc. DJ D’Nice will be playing Canadian music all day and KBB has kindly offered to provide volunteers to help with management of trash and recycling. We also have support from the Parks Department to make sure that we leave the beach even cleaner than we found it so we are encouraging people to take their trash and recycling home with them or make sure that they use the proper bins when disposing of your trash. Remember – it’s only tin, aluminium and glass in the recycling bins and regular trash in the trash bins – KBB and Parks are supplying both.
We will have security on site and parking will be limited. Please, if you plan to drink, arrange for alternative transportation – Warwick Long Bay is on the #7 bus route or you could take a cab or assign a designated driver. This will also help to alleviate parking congestion. We will not have life guards so swimming will be at your own risk. And please don’t forget your reef-friendly sunscreen.
We encourage all attendees to wear your red and white proudly, All Island residents and guests are welcome. On Canada Day, everyone is Canadian
