Celebrations of “Dominion Day” get started bright and early in Barkerville at 8 a.m, and the day-long festivities offer something a little more unique than the average July 1st fest. Try your hand at the tug-of-war or funny face contests, see how well you fare at the greasy pole climb or the egg toss, or just stick around to enjoy fireworks, dancing, entertainment and refreshments.
