Thorold residents came together on Sunday, July 9, 2017 to take part in the national living flag initiative as part of #Canada150 celebrations. Over 350 people took part and received T-shirts donated by Empire Communities who are developing a new subdivision on the west side of Port Robinson.
The living flag event was hosted by Club Castropignano and was a joint celebration by the City of Thorold and Port Robinson Proud. This one-of-a-kind event was the first of its kind in Niagara. No one has ever done a living flag here before.
Many participants were ferried to Port Robinson for the event via Bridge-it – a free pedestrian and cycling ferry across the Welland Canal.
In a recent post, Ten Places With the Best Weather in Canada, on MSN, Thorold came in at #1. With warmest temperatures and lowest rainfall, Thorold not only has a great sense of community, but also great weather!
Congratulations to all partners and participants!
