Living Canadian flag event in Port Robinson

Living Flag Port Robinson

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!
