A drive-in movie originally scheduled to take place during 1913 Days has now been rescheduled.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ was supposed to be shown on Saturday, June 13, marking the end to a day of community activities held in celebration of 1913 Days. The showing was cancelled on the day, and has since been rescheduled for Saturday (June 27) in the Canadian Tire parking lot.

The movie begins at 10:30 p.m., and is being held free of charge — although donations to Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program will be accepted.

The event is being put on by Canadian Tire and the Town of Sylvan Lake.

Several days later, the town will come alive with Canada Day celebrations, with events and activities set to take place in and around the community throughout the day.

The Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake is presenting a number of events, including a flag raising ceremony at Lions Park at 1:30 p.m. The ceremony will be immediately followed by a March of Canadians from Lions Park to the Pier, before a birthday cake celebration is held at 2:30 p.m. The Johnny Thorson Banjo Express will provide musical entertainment at 2:40 and 3:40 p.m., while a children’s play area complete with large bouncy toys will be set up on the Pier’s south end from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Further events include a rubber duck race at Bukwildz on Lakeshore Drive at 4 p.m., a free massage service from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. near the corner of Lakeshore Drive and Centennial Street, and fireworks and a boat parade at 11 p.m.

See pages 16 and 17 of this week’s paper for a more comprehensive look at what’s scheduled.
