Canada Day festivities returned to Joussard on July 1 after being cancelled by COVID-19 restrictions in 2020-21. Joussard Community Association hosted an afternoon and evening of events for all ages. Cool temperatures and rainy weather didn’t dampen the spirits in the children’s bicycle parade led by the Joussard fire district of Big Lakes County Fire Services. Other events included games for children and adults and a roast beef supper at the JCA hall. Festivities finished with fireworks.
