Canada Day 2017

On July 1, we celebrated Canada Day and 150 years of Confederation. There were all kinds of celebrations to make this milestone, and I spent Canada Day in my hometown- something I haven't done in years! I am a little late in sharing how I celebrated the day, but better late than never!!

It was a jammed pack day with a ton of things going on!! I spent the day with my family, and we started at about 9am where my dad unveiled a clock and encapsulated a time capsule. 

Next we were off to a local park, which was where our City's celebration were taking place. The festivities were officially kick-off and included an appearance by our Town Crier! 

A portion of the street was shut down and filled with food vendors. The park hosted a variety of activities- face painting, arts and crafts, games such as bubble soccer, inflatables, and even activites out on the water.

And of course there was live entertainment- musicians, magicians, singers, and dancers. 

We took a break in out day to head down to the Flatwater Centre and take in some of the races for the Dominion Day Regatta. 

What is a Canada Day celebration without fireworks?! We finished the day on the bridge watching fireworks over the water. It was a spectacular show and a fantastic day!
