AMHERST – Canada Day festivities are underway in Amherst, where civic pride is taking over the downtown.

From 1 to 6 p.m. there’ll be music, activities and vendors in the downtown and the square, while the fireworks will take place at about 9:30 p.m.

There will be a bouncy castle, carnival games, glitter tattoos, a barbecue, ice cream, face-painting, crafts and more on Victoria Street. The Sports Zone has also returned this year with the zip line.
