Balloons, kids, Ducky Five Hundred participants, parade watchers and inquisitive people from all parts of the globe filled the Courtenay and District Museum to the brim and over on Canada Day. Whether people visited out of curiosity about the fabulous new exhibits, or because they needed some cool air and a great place to be, staff and volunteers greeted people with door prizes, terrific music from the Wire Choir and loads of Canada Day crafts for young people.

Happy 2013 Canada!
