Marie Burland of Robert Little Public
School created and coaches the "Everybody Dance Club" to start the 2006
Canada Day entertainment in Prospect Park.
Starting at 6 PM
on Saturday July 1, 2006 the festivities began as the school dance club
puts on a few numbers before the rain starts. The Dance club is a staple
of some of the Town events, including the Leathertown Festival. Fun, exercise
and friendship are great activities of the club and the kids really enjoy

and Melissa finished dancing and start hamming it up before the beginning
of Acton Idol.
Acton Firefighters volunteer for the Canada Day Fireworks display (asking
only for donations to help cover costs) and they do an amazing job year
They set up the
fireworks at the point in Prospect Park right beside Fairy Lake.
The firefighters enjoy
a small break as they set up the fireworks.
Some local teens provide some necessary
colour for the event as they watch the events. I was joking with them that
I thought they might have been in the Olympics because it looks like they
are on the winners podium.
The rain and thunder
came around a few times but the day was very pleasant.
Brooke and Jamie Thorne sing a duet before Alysha takes over the grandstand.
Before the fireworks (usually start
around 10PM) the kids play with sparklers.
Some of the patterns and sparks
make for some pretty neat viewing.

fireworks erupt over Fairy Lake in Acton's Prospect Park.
The amount and variety of fireworks
was amazing and a great tribute to the work that the Firefighters put into
the night - congratulations to all for an exciting Canada Day celebration
for all those that worked hard and also participated in the events.
