Happy Summer
School is finished for another year, and we extend congratulations to all our teachers and students, on a successful 2016/17 school year. It's time to get out and enjoy summer! Our children will be taking a break from the school routine and playing in our neighbourhoods, parks and playgrounds.  We ask drivers to please use extra caution and reduce speeds - we all need to do our part to keep our children safe. Have a safe and enjoyable summer everyone!
One Horse Town Concert
The Town of Paradise is in the finals for the 2017 Coors Banquet One Horse Town concert!  We are on the short-list of six municipalities across Canada to have CMT Canada and Coors bring a live country music event to Town. The winner is selected through online voting. You can cast your vote once a day until July 9.

If Paradise wins the Coors Banquet One Horse Town concert, our residents can look forward to a free 19+ concert featuring country music stars Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, Jess Moskaluke, and the James Baker Band.

Note: Tickets to Coors Banquet One Horse Town concert are distributed by CMT and Coors free of charge to residents of the host location over legal drinking age on a first come, first served basis. Ticket volume is based on capacity.
