July 1st, 2020 marks Canada’s 153rd birthday. A time where the nation unites to celebrate and recognize the coming of Canada as a new federation with its own constitution. But you might be wondering how you’re going to show pride this year amidst COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions. Thankfully, we’ve created a list of activities you and your friends and family can do to say happy birthday, Canada.
- Virtual Canada Day celebration: Canadian Heritage – As Canada’s capital, Ottawa is a hot spot for all Canada Day celebrations. Although the official Canada Day celebration in Ottawa has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the heritage ministry has put together a virtual Canada Day 2020 event. Over 2,000 registrants have already RSVP’d on the Facebook event page. Be sure to check out the event page for more information on what’s to come.
- Niagara Falls Canada Day – Niagara Falls is inviting Canadians coast to coast to unite virtually to celebrate national pride. Beginning at 9 a.m. on July 1, attendees will be entertained by a jam-packed virtual celebration production which includes buskers, artists, magic, fire, musical performers, fireworks, magicians and a surprise musical guest. Plus they’re giving away a ton of free prizes including a BBQ, bicycles, iPads and more. Be sure to check out the event page for more details.
- On the beach – Yup, you heard right! Believe it or not, Canada has some pretty great beaches. With provinces like Ontario increasing the gathering limit to groups of 10, you could gather 9 of your best friends and head over to one of Canada’s many beaches to celebrate. Be sure to check the social distancing and cannabis consumption laws rules in your province before you make plans. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your Sticky Nuggz Inc. rolling papers. These Canadian-made high-quality rolling papers are ideal for your all-things-Canadian celebration.
- Calling all Torontonians – Are you one of the thousands of people who attend Toronto’s city hall celebration? As Canada’s largest city, it’s no surprise Toronto does it big every year with fireworks and a-list performances. Toronto Mayor, John Tory, has recently announced it will help Canadians mark Canada’s 153rd birthday virtually on Wednesday, July 1 through a livestream show, Canada Day 2020. The show will engage local residents, connect diverse communities and honour COVID-19 frontline workers. Program details are available on the city website where you can also find the list of performing artists and event breakdown.
- Light Show – Who doesn’t enjoy a good firework show? Cities across the country are hosting their own virtual firework performance including Toronto, Vaughan, and Burlington. Be sure to check out the event page for times and dates and share the links with your friends and family so you can celebrate Canada’s birthday together.
Whether you’re tuning in for a virtual Canada Day celebration, kicking it on a sandy beach, or being captivated by a light show, remember to abide by your province’s social distancing and consumption rules to ensure a fun and safe celebration. We wish the Sticky Nuggz Inc. community a very Happy Canada Day!
