Salisbury Community Days 2020 is going VIRTUAL! So grab your smart phone, fire up your laptop – by golly, even boot up the ol’ Vic20 (okay, maybe not the Vic20…) and JOIN US ONLINE!!
What better year to use our 20/20 vision and look back over the many glorious editions of Community Days?!
Pick a favourite theme from years past and decorate your property instead of a float – we can make it part of our virtual parade! And speaking of parade, get ready for a look at over 30 years of Community Days Parades and other events in a special online slide show we have planned!
There will be online challenges ranging from crafts and colouring, to cooking and photos. How about a scavenger hunt? Or village-wide yard sales! Plus, there’s always great food to enjoy during Community Days, including the Parks & Leisure Lobster Supper (take-out) and the Salisbury Lions Club Pancake Breakfast (drive-thru)!
A complete schedule will be available soon! The Salisbury Community Days Committee hopes you will join us in this virtual celebration! 
Decorate your homes or property using a theme from a past Community Days celebration!
               Think of it as like a float that doesn’t leave your property! Phone the Village Office (372-3230) and register the address of your
               entry and it will be added to a list/map (download or limited pick-up quantities). PRIZES TO BE WON!
