Dominion Day/Canada Day
"Frolic, Flags, Fun, Food, Fair, Floats"
Kitimat Celebrates Dominion Day/Canada Day
"Tradition held Dominion Day for celebrations here with azure blue skies and sun which lifted the mercury to 75 degrees, browning a crowd estimated at close to 4,000 along the parade route and at Riverlodge observances. Kitimat has never had a wet or even cloudy Dominion Day in the last eight years." Northern Sentinel, July 2, 1964
Everyone in Kitimat participated in the annual parade that wound its way from Nechako Centre to City Centre and the lower parking lot. Once the Haisla Hill Climb and soapbox races on Kuldo were established and the YMCA constructed, the parade route changed to City Centre, Quatsino, and Columbia, to the Y and all the festivities there.
