Have a Great Canada Day!


Hub Trail Festival. This is a free, family event that encourages everyone to Walk, Ride, or Roll your way along the Hub Trail from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Discover the Hub Trail and reap the benefits – make it work for you. Everyone is welcome from hikers and cyclers to skaters and wheelers.

Start at any one of the six passport stations: Algoma Public Health at Finn Hill near the parking lot; Velorution; Sault Naturalists at Fort Creek Conservation Area; the Marconi Club; the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre; or the George Leach Centre at Algoma University. At each station you will receive a stamp on your passport for the section of trail you’ve completed. You can go to one station or visit them all. Return your completed passport to the Roberta Bondar Pavilion to enter into a prize draw at 3 p.m. (You must be present at the draw to win).
NEW to the event this year, keep your eyes open for “Community Partners” located along the Hub Trail with fun activities, great give-a-ways and more.
