There is a big change to Belleville’s July 1 Canada Day celebrations this year, and it has to do with the timing.
The Belleville Chamber of Commerce runs the celebration for the city, at Zwick’s Park.
Event coordinator Susan Walsh tells Quinte News the city has decided to keep the celebration on July 1, Sunday, but with a shorter time frame. The events will start at 3 p.m. and run straight through to the fireworks, which begin at 10 p.m.
Walsh emphasized there will be many free attractions throughout the day and continuous live entertainment on the main stage.
The charge for parking will be $5.
