What to do in Vancouver for Canada Day

Get out your Canada gear (we all have some from the Olympics!), your flags and your Canadian spirit cause it looks like the sun will be shining and it's celebrations galore this weekend in Vancity (and beyond)!  

What do to this Canada Day (to name but 5)... 

1.  Canada Day – Canada Place!  Live entertainment and music and who doesn’t love a parade!  The party on the waterfront starts at 10am and goes till 6 and the parade starts at 7pm.   Then stick around and watch...

2.  ...The Burrard Inlet Fireworks!  You can also watch from Coal Harbour seawall, Stanley Park, West Vancouver and North Vancouver. You can just go and find a great spot and you can also buy Tickets for the prime viewing zone!

3.  Always a winner is of course Granville Island – Canada Day is a HUGE day on Granville Island.  It kicks off with a pancake breakfast and kicks on till midnight.  There is lots of entertainment for all ages including a parade, live music and entertainment, an official Canada Day ceremony and a South Asian cultural fair.

4.  If you’re in Surrey and want to check out the BIGGEST Canada Day event in all of Western Canada and one of the biggest outdoor concerts, then you need to go to Surrey Canada Day at the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheater.  This years line up includes Platinum Blond and Sloan!   

5.  Not in Surrey or Vancouver and in the mood for Salmon – like 1200lbs of it?  Check out Canada Day at the Steveston Salmon Festival!  From 10am – 10 pm in Steveston Village

If you happen to be away for Canada Day or miss out on the fireworks, don’t forget the
Honda Celebration of Light is coming July 27th!  This years competitors are Canada, UK and Thailand!

Happy Canada Day!
