Hot Date: Canada Day Gets the Royal Treatment

If there was ever a year to head to the capital to celebrate Canada Day this July 1, this is it! Not only is there a jam-packed line-up of entertainment (Sam Roberts and Great Big Sea being two names of note), but also the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be taking part in the noon show on Parliament Hill as part of their first official overseas trip as newlyweds. Other activities happening throughout the day at Major’s Hill Park and Jacques Cartier Park include dance performances, a slam-dunk show, kite-flying, and a DJ party, topped off with the spectacular fireworks show at night. So don your red and white clothes, paint a maple leaf on your face (whether you’re Canadian or not), and get ready to wish Canada a big, royal 144th birthday.
