The official Canada Day Celebration begins at 4:30 p.m. when we raise the Canadian flag and proudly sing our national anthem. On-stage performances feature a wide range of music and dance selections by local and well-known artists to entertain audience members of all ages. We end a great day with a large-scale fireworks display beginning at 10:00 pm.
