We at Stanton Renaissance are excited to tell you about the extraordinary number of options for those spending Canada Day in our great city of Toronto this year.
Perhaps one of the biggest events to check out is The Harbourfront Centre’s celebration of the nation’s 149th birthday with exciting musical performances and activities for the whole family, ending with fantastic fireworks over Lake Ontario.
Also, since it’s going to be a scorcher, head out with family and friends to The Canadian Olympic Team Beach Party at Woodbine beach and watch a bunch of Canadian Olympic volleyball players show off before they head to Rio! And if that’s not entertaining enough, Sloan will perform amongst the flying balls.
The Redpath Waterfront Festival is a free and enlivening way to keep you cool with tall ship tours, particularly an authentic Viking Ship. There’s an open-air food and craft market, a sporty dog show, and—you guessed it—fireworks after dark.
The City of Toronto hosts a Free Canada Day Concert and Fireworks at Mel Lastman Square in North York. This year, check out the amazing soul, funk, hip-hop, and circus acts taking centre stage. Should be a quality event.
Finally, if you want to switch it up, and really treat yourself by spending Canada Day on the water, several companies offer special cruises on the Toronto harbour on Canada Day weekend, including lunch and dinner cruises, and fireworks cruises too.
• Jubilee Queen Cruises
• Mariposa Cruises
