This is a past event.
When: Thu., July 1 2010
Break out your red, white and maple leaf attire for the country's birthday. Start your day right with free pancakes---part of this complete breakfast---at Grand Parade or Alderney Landing at 8am. Make it up to Citadel Hill by noon for official ceremonies, free admission to the site and a 21-gun salute. For the family, there's a Great Canadian Family Picnic on the Commons at lunchtime, and then head over to the dark side for the free concert at Alderney Landing. Hometown hero Joel Plaskett headlines the show, and handpicked the rest of the lineup, which includes Rose Cousins, English Words, the David Myles Trio and more. Finish your dream date with your country with a romantic fireworks show over the waterfront. –Laura Kenins
