Campbell River’s Virtual Canada Day website re-launched

The Campbell River Canada Day Committee, led by their chair Carol Chapman, has re-launched the Campbell River Canada Day website to support this year’s VIRTUAL Celebration. (Next year, they are hoping for in-person celebrations)

The committee is asking everyone to decorate their homes, their cars, their businesses, even themselves — in Canada Day colours — take photos and/or videos of everything or everyone that has been decorated and upload them to campbellrivercanadaday.ca. These will all be complied into a virtual video celebration parade to be broadcast July 1 on Shaw Spotlight Channel Four, Facebook, YouTube as well as the Campbell River Canada Day website.

The deadline for photo and video submissions is June 18!
