ENFIELD: Mother Nature tried her best to dampen the festive spirit of Canada’s 150th celebrations across the province, including that in Enfield and Elmsdale.

With a busy Canada Day on tap for our reporters, Enfield photographer Martine Heffernan stepped up to the plate to take these photos from the parade in Enfield.

Even with the rain, spirits didn’t fizzle but instead parade participants saw many residents along the route brave the rain with them for the annual parade, organized by the Enfield & Elmsdale Lions Club.

The day was filled with lots of great activities, culminating with another stellar fireworks show even with weather and fog threatening.
