Mark Donnelly as Dominion Day Special Guest! We are very excited to announce that “Mr. O Canada” himself, the Canucks’ own, Mark Donnelly, will be joining us to help celebrate Canada’s birthday!
Mark will sing the National Anthem twice in Barkerville for the event, with one anthem being sung from the Barkerville Hotel down Barkerville’s main street and one from the top of the Canadian Claim and down the Barkerville valley!
