Conception Bay North hosts Canada Day festivities

CONCEPTION BAY NORTH, NL — Less-than-ideal weather didn't deter folks in Conception Bay North from celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canada.

A downpour of rain forced some towns to alter their plans for the morning, though the afternoon proved to be more hospitable for events. Large crowds gathered in communities like Bay Roberts, Carbonear and elsewhere. Upper Island Cove's big Canada Day parade went off without a hitch.

Compass reporters were out and about Saturday to take in some events and snag photos, which you can scroll through in the above slideshow.
