We usually leave our plans for Canada Day as last minute since we can never decide on what to do. This year we want to celebrate 150 years with a day filled with fun family events and activities. There are so many celebrations and events to attend depending on what you are into.
All events I have listed are family friendly and you can’t go wrong for a weekend of fun.
