July 1st, for some this means a cottage weekend, a big barbeque with copious amounts of food and finishing the night off with fireworks. Whether you’re on the water, heading to the big city or staying home we want you to have a great Canada Day. We’ve collected a list of ways you can celebrate this nation's birthday in the amazing July weather.
Get To Know Your Community
The City of Grande Prairie in Alberta has amazing ways to celebrate and show your pride this Canada Day. Start by joining the door and balcony decorating contest! This is a great activity to get the kids excited and involved in the festivities. Explore more of Grand Prairie in participating in the community scavenger hunt. Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without a double fireworks display! Find more information about what the City of Grand Prairie has planned here.
If you’re outside the Grand Prairie community why not replicate the initiatives in your own neighborhood and community. This is a great way to get everyone involved and show your pride.
Challenge yourself and the family with our Canadian Checklist. This is a fun activity for the whole family, you could maybe have a little contest with other households to see how many items you can find in your house that are on the Canadian Checklist. Once all the points are tallied why not gear up in Canada pride and gather everyone up together. Celebrate with a barbeque and sparklers at the end of the night. This will be on Canada Day to remember.
A drumming performance is a big part of celebrating Canada Day, as it unites communities and cultural backgrounds. In the light of the pandemic a drumming performance will still occur virtually. Tune in to listen to performers from coast to coast drum simultaneously to promote diversity, multicultural harmony, peace and love. You won’t want to miss this powerful performance that brings all Canadians together, while also saluting healthcare and front-line workers during these difficult times.
