• Canada Day around the Island

    ON JULY 1 – As with last weekend’s Fete Nationale festivities, celebrants of Canada Day don’t have to travel far from home to find fun.

    Of course, you may choose to immerse yourselves in the crowds downtown for the big parade, but the parties that are hosted in the boroughs are also good bets for family-friendly fun, food and fireworks (alliteration totally unintentional).
