Community picks Canada Day house decorating winner

The City of Lloydminster has released a map of its Canada Day house decorating finalists so families could go on a tour as part of their July 1st celebration.

The City of Lloydminster encouraged residents to participate in a house decorating contest last week with the community choosing their favourite from top five from June 26th to 29th.

On Tuesday, the City announced the winner of the decorating contest along with the release of the map.

A handful of Canada Day activities are available for families looking to celebrate.

The City is offering a few events for the community such as local performances through on social media, and a city-wide scavenger hunt, encouraging people to find Canadian flags scattered at landmarks throughout the City.

The City will be giving out 24 hints for each landmark that the flags are placed on and residents will have the rest of the week to find them.

Submitting five pictures will give participants a chance at a prize.

An activity kit with bingos, crossword puzzles, coloring pages, recipes, and crafts for families to take part in is also available on the City’s website.
