Burnaby announces plans for its Canada Day celebrations

March 1, 2017 by  

This year, Canada will be celebrating its 150th birthday, and Burnaby will be getting in on the fun by planning special festivities to mark the occasion.

At least three different venues in the community will be playing host to their own activities, and according to the city, more will be added to the schedule as July 1 draws closer.

Edmonds Plaza and Park will offer an outdoor event with arts and crafts for the kids, musical entertainment for all, face painting and a cake cutting. At the Burnaby Village museum, the festivities will be set against a 1920s-themed backdrop. There will be musical performances and other entertainment, displays, a parade, live demonstrations and an assortment of other historically themed fun.

The day will come to a close with a free live concert, which will be followed by a colorful firework display. All of this will be in honor of the country’s 150th year. A printer can use graphic design technology to craft banners and other themed decorations for celebrations such as this.

All of this, plus a whole lot more, will be taking place in Burnaby on July 1 at sites around the city. Additional details and events will be added to the Burnaby website as the date draws closer, so those who are interested in attending any of the scheduled activities are advised to check it regularly.
