It was over a hundred years ago, in 1912, that Lynn Valley Day celebrations first took place. However it was much later, when in 1972 the celebrations was revitalized it to be the on-going annual event it has become. A popular community day it includes a local parade and a day full of family focused activities. But of course visitors are more than welcome!

Local community groups are also there with their own booths to showcase their work and efforts on behalf of the community.
