Celebrating Canada Day 2020 looks different than we are accustomed to. We love to celebrate with music, entertainment, gathering at Erma Joy Brown Park and finish off with a spectacular night of fireworks.
This year we have Canada Flags festively lining Centre Avenue. Residents and businesses are hosting their own small gatherings. We will all enjoy the holiday, and look forward to being able to celebrate as a whole community in the future.
We encourage you to check out what Heritage Canada and the City of Calgary are hosting virtually, they have some fantastic performers lined up, and tips and activities for the family.
Our fireworks provider, Big Bang Fireworks, is doing a Canada Day show. If you would like to watch his show, it will be streamed live on Instagram July 1 at 11:00 pm MDT.
