Mississauga to wish country a happy birthday

June 25, 2017 by  

The Mississauga neighborhood of Port Credit will be hosting special celebrations of the nation’s 150th birthday, and everyone is invited to come and join in the festivities that have been planned for the two-day community-wide party.

The event, which has been dubbed ‘Paint the Town Red’, will offer lots to see and do for children and adults alike. There will be a parade led by grand marshal Hazel McCallion, and it has been named in her honour. There will also be live entertainment provided courtesy of local bands and performers, group singing of the national anthem, dancing, and a special area of activities for the kids, and one for youth will be set up as well. A local print company can supply an assortment of branded promotional products to give out during a function such as this.

A big part of the celebration will be the firework spectacular, which is being included in the event thanks to the sponsorship of Queenscorp Group. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and a bar area will be set up for the adults who wish to relax with a cold drink. According to the organizers, the goal is to bring all members of the local community together in the spirit of fun and excitement.

All of this has been planned for Port Credit Memorial Park next weekend, July 1 and 2, and additional information, as well as a full schedule of the planned activities, can be found on the event’s website.
