150 years! Wow. There are so many reasons to celebrate our beautiful country’s birthday, and there are so many ways you can celebrate, too! With an endless amount of Canada 150 events going on, we’ve captured what we think are some of the best places to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in Toronto. Enjoy!
The CN Tower
If there’s any place to head on July 1, it’s the CN Tower. In addition to being next to one of the biggest landmarks in the country, you will get a front-row view of the CN Tower’s spectacular fireworks display and light show – starting at 10:30pm. If the CN Tower is too far from home for you, you can watch the show from a number of vantage points throughout the city. It’s seriously going to be a blast!
Where better to celebrate our country than at Queen’s Park? On July 1, you can take part in a bunch of Canada-themed activities, designed for families and people of all ages. Some activities/events include: music and dance performances, games, children’s activities (like face painting and arts and crafts), and a citizenship ceremony. The best part? Admission is free!
Nathan Phillips Square
It’s a weekend affair at Nathan Phillips Square! From June 30 to July 3, Nathan Phillips Square will celebrate Canadian culture with an incredible mix of music, dance, circus, and street arts.
There will be food and beverages available to the public throughout the day, and a nightly fireworks show in the evening. Be there or be square!
The Rogers Centre
Consider this a Canada Day home run! The Rogers Centre (or should we say Skydome) is hosting two games against the Boston Red Sox on July 1 and 2. Family activities around the dome will begin at 9 a.m., and the first 20,000 fans will receive a red Blue Jays hat on July 1, and a commemorative baseball on July 2. You’ll want to get there early!
Join 100,000 of your fellow Canadians to celebrate Canada’s 150th at Celebration Square. You’ll be able to witness live concerts, with performances from K’NAAN, award-winning DJ’s, a fusion tabla drummer, a Latin pop singer, a brass band, and the list goes on! There will also be a Canadian Citizenship reaffirmation oath, a parade, stilt walkers/acrobats, face painters, crafts, and so much more. It’s fun for the whole family!
However you celebrate this Canada Day, we wish you a happy one! And as always, If you would like to learn more about Medallion, please visit us at http://medallioncorp.com/site/.
