Couples can renew their vows on the beach

Canada Day offers chance to show your spouse you're still in love

Looking to get re-hitched? Canada Day on Harrison’s shores may be just the place to get that done. Harrison Councillor Dave Harris says that any couples who want to renew their vows can do so at the Canada Day celebrations.

“This will be very informal,” he says, with the hopes that people who got married at the lake will come out to renew their vows. The marriage commissioner in charge of the service will be Mary Dams, who Harris says has performed numerous beachfront weddings through the years.

They’ll start at about 10 a.m. at the Harrison Plaza, and depending on the number of couples who attend, it will take about 15 to 20 minutes, Harris says.

The ceremony will include everyone at once, and there is no need to bring a marriage certificate.

There is no registration, and no cost.

“And we’ll be giving out a certificate saying they renewed their vows, signed by the mayor and Mary Dams,” he says.

Other Canada Day celebrations on the beach include the parade, a performance by Todd Richard (see page 17) at 3:30 p.m., Treble Hook at 7 p.m. and the fireworks show at dark. After the fireworks, Treble Hook will play for about half an hour, to entertain people who choose to wait out the traffic.
