Canada’s Birthday is just around the corner. On July 1st 2013, our beloved country turns 146 years old and that’s reason to celebrate! Join in the festivities happening in BC with your family and friends. Local community groups and City Halls across the lower mainland have planned an amazing roster of events for the great Canada Day celebration.
Events include activities for the kids, entertainment, musicians, crafts, food and beverages, sponsored displays and even birthday cake for everyone to enjoy. Of course, grand finales for all events will end with a bang when they present an awesome presentation for the fireworks display.
If you have never been to a Canada Day celebration, make it a priority to go out and celebrate this year. It will be something you will never forget and it’s a great way to have fun with the family for free. After all it’s not just about a birthday, its really about being proud for being Canadian, and acknowledging just how fortunate we are to live in the greatest country on earth!
