Happy 145th! 0
Canada Day celebrations took off in Portage la Prairie early this morning as Canadians mark the 145th anniversary of Canada Day.
The annual pancake breakfast kickstarted the festivities as hundreds received two pancakes, a couple sausages and coffee to begin their day.
Plenty events continue to occupy Island Park for the rest of the day and the night will be capped off with Fireworks at 10:30 p.m.
