Thousands of Cochranites made their way to Mitford Park to take in the biggest party of the year to celebrate Canada's 157th birthday. 

The inclement weather didn't stop the crowd from taking in the non-stop entertainment from the Canmore Dixieland Band to the Band of Outriders, to the Smoking Aces to The Hi-Tops.  

Kids had a blast watching Richard The Magician, the YYC Princesses and the Schuyler of Snow Circus. 

A special Canadian Citizenship Ceremony was held where 43 people from 15 different countries became Canadians. 

The evening ended off on a high note, with an incredible fireworks performance for all of Cochrane to enjoy. 

Here's a look at some of the fun from yesterday.
