Canada’s 152nd birthday party in Pitt Meadows will begin with an 8 a.m. pancake breakfast, hosted by the Pitt Meadows Lions Club. Members will serve until 10 a.m. For those who get hungry later in the festivities, there will be food trucks on site with a variety of offerings.

There will be entertainment on stage, with Almost Famous beginning at 10 a.m., and playing a 45-minute set.

That will be followed by brief civic ceremonies to officially mark the occasion at 10:45 a.m.

There’s fun for dog lovers with a unique show. It will kick off at 10 a.m. with a canine fitness dog demonstration by Cedar Valley K9.

Then from 10:15-10:45 a.m., there will be a dog show with prizes for best dressed, biggest dog, smallest dog and best trick.
