On Saturday, May 28, kick off Mount Royal’s 140th anniversary celebrations in grand style! From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., attend mini yacht demonstrations and regattas or play cricket, then raise your glass to the Mountain during a “happy hour” at Beaver Lake Pavilion before attending a dance soirée that will combine folk dancing and electro-trad rhythms.
