Elora Lions have been serving free hot dogs and lemonade on Dominion Day for as long as I can recall. In 1867 Canada was born and back then the country's birthday was referred to as Dominion Day. I can't say for sure but I don't think hot dogs had even been invented let alone lemonade!
In 1982 the government of Canada changed the holiday name to Canada Day. So when your parents and grandparents wish you and each other Happy Dominion Day....humour them and try not to roll your eyes. Besides they might beat you to the front of the line for their free hot dog!
Mark your calendars:
