Canada Day celebrations returned to Cochrane for the first time in over two years.

Thousands of Cochranites marked the occasion by flooding into Mitford Park for the majority of the celebrations.

When attendants arrived they were greeted with food trucks, games (including the CochraneNow prize wheel), live music, and much more.

Luckily the weather stayed away for most of the day, meaning sunshine and good times for families on their holiday day out.

Here are some photos from the day.
