COVID-19: Friends of Fort George to sell Canada Day kits in lieu of festivities this year

Canada Day celebrations will look very different this year, but the Friends of Fort George have stepped up to prepare at-home Canada Day kits for purchase in lieu of the cancelled annual festivities.

Although the usual cake parade, fireworks and evening barbecue will not happen due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Friends have partnered with Parks Canada and Willow Cakes and Pastries to bring the Canada Day celebrations to Niagara residents in their own homes.

Each package will contain six Canada Day cupcakes created by Willow, as well as flags, pins, temporary tattoos, glow sticks and Parks Canada swag. The kit costs $35 with free delivery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and $40 for delivery outside of NOTL.

Supplies are limited and must be ordered by June 25. Orders can be made through the Friends of Fort Gorge online gift shop at https://friendsoffortgeorge.square.site, or by phoning the store at 905-468-6621.

Further to the at-home Canada Day packages, the Friends have also created the hashtag #CanadaDayNOTL in hopes of connecting the community’s celebrations via social media.

Follow along via the Friends’ Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@fofg) accounts for more content leading up to Canada Day.
