Canada Day is one of the biggest celebrations in the country and the Hamilton area, much like many other large cities in the region, go all out in order to celebrate our nation’s birthday. One of the benefits of Canada Day this year falling on a Monday is that it provides the capability to celebrate over the course of the weekend, rather than just one evening of events. The city of Hamilton is going all out in providing a number of different activities for residents of all ages.
One of the first events to talk about when it comes to Canada Day celebrations across Hamilton is the various sources of food made available throughout the weekend. From the O Canada Ribfest to the Canada Day pancake breakfast, you will have your selection of the widest variety of food offerings from local establishments and around the nation. With some of the best barbecue in the country being held over the weekend, putting on your bid, gathering the family and heading out to one of the many pit master locations will ensure that you get a meal worth taking time out for.
Also available across the Hamilton area will be a variety of activities and music to partake in. Music has always been a giant part of Canada Day celebrations and this year is no different. With a variety of local bands, big-name bands coming in from other locations and activities of all types across the city, you have the capability to make the most of each day of the weekend leading up to the biggest party on Canada Day itself. Whether you’re a local resident or coming in for the weekend, there will be a little something for everyone.
Of course, what would Canada Day be without the iconic fireworks display. Being held at the Waterdown Memorial Park, when the sun goes down the sky lights up. This of course is one of the most popular draws when it comes to any of the activities being celebrated on Canada Day, seeing hundreds of local area residents and visitors, families of all sizes and a variety of music and activity being carried on both before and after. If you haven’t yet had the capability to get down and celebrate the Canada Day fireworks, this year may be your time.
One thing is always for certain when it comes to Canada Day celebrations, the capability to get out and to experience the Hamilton area, your fellow residents and visitors in the region, and to come together in order to celebrate the country we all love. It may not be as grandiose as the 150th celebration we had a couple years ago, but that’s not to say that individuals across the city don’t put a high level of care and effort into every aspect of this weekend’s events. Whether you’re looking for food, fun or fireworks, you are guaranteed to find it across Hamilton.
