On Saturday, July 1st at 3 pm, my team and I will be walking in the 50th Annual Scarborough Canada Day Parade on Brimley Road (Progress Rd to Lawrence Ave E), and we hope that you will come out and join us.
As with other parades in our community, we will be carrying banners and handing out Canada flags to the crowd along the way. This year, we will be joined by all Scarborough MPs and their teams for the parade.
Please RSVP by replying to this email, or by calling the office at 416-283-1226 if you will be able to join us on Saturday July 1st at 3pm.
I also encourage you to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday at Canada Days at Scarborough Civic Centre!
The multi-stage event will feature performances by local, national and international music acts from desert blues, Taiwanese indie, and electronica to legends of reggae and South Asian hip hop. Hear the heartbeat of Canada at the drum stage through pow wow and dhol drum performances and experience the artistry of emerging singers, dancers and spoken word artists at the bandshell stage.
A family activity zone and a hospitality area offering food and beverages will be available for the public throughout the day. A spectacular fireworks finale at 10:55 pm will end the night. For the Canada Days event program click here.
Canada Days is produced by the City of Toronto in partnership with the Province of Ontario’s Ontario150 Program and the Government of Canada.
