Canada Day celebration set for Mississauga Celebration Square

June 28, 2012 by  

Canada Day is sure to be an exciting day for the city of Mississauga, with festivities for residents set to begin at 1:00 pm at Celebration Square and plenty of performances, extreme sports, games, and competition in this family-friendly event.

Long-time mayor Hazel McCallion, along with city council members, lead the official inauguration ceremony that begins the yearly Mississauga party at Celebration Square this Sunday. The line-up includes the Ride the Tiger, Paint Movement, Selyne Maia Trio and Cardinal Chase. Live performances by Juno Award winner Dragonette and pop artist Carly Rae Jepson will liven up the party.

The Central Library also holds the yearly book sale occurring every Canada Day, while the Living Arts Centre holds a variety of children’s activities, including displays by artists and craft exhibitions. The display will conclude with the yearly fireworks displays, which will last 15 minutes.

The Canada Day festivities will encourage more Mississauga residents to visit the Square this summer. Already, crowds are on hand for the Eurocup matches, as more people are visiting Celebration Square this summer.

The summer excitement of Mississauga will mean fantastic advertising opportunities for printers in the area. Poster printing of the Canada Day celebration is being displayed throughout the area to encourage residents to come out and join the community for this free and fun event.

Elsewhere in Mississauga, other celebrations are taking place alongside the Celebration Square party. Streetsville Canada Day party will include a barbecue, performances, and balloon animals, along with fireworks and flag-raising.
