For me, there’s nothing quite like kicking off the summer with family and friends on Canada Day. Across Halton, Canada Day celebrations are in full swing from morning till night. There is something for everyone, from parades to duck races, bouncy castles to rock concerts, yoga to museum tours. Deciding what to do will be the hardest part!
And of course, a big celebration and salute to our amazing nation has to end in style! At night, grab your blankets and watch the professionals light up the sky with a magical fireworks show. Who doesn’t love fireworks?
