On Canada Day, our great nation is turning another year older. Even though we are in the middle of a pandemic, we can still celebrate together! Normally, Canada Day is full of lively performances, parades, face painting, fireworks and a whole host of other family-friendly events. While those things are postponed for 2020, there are some fun ways to join the celebrations virtually from home.
The Government of Canada is hosting a variety of livestream events on Canada Day, including a daytime and evening show. The daytime show, Canada Day Across the Country, is from 12-1 pm EST. The evening show, Canada Day Together, is from 7-9 pm EST. Both shows will feature great Canadian Artists, virtual celebrations and other surprises. You can stay updated on the virtual events schedule by following the Virtual Canada Day 2020 – Toronto Facebook Page.
With help from various sponsors, you can download a Celebration Kit to help you get the party started at home. These kits are creative, educational and geared towards families. In each kit you will find crafts, games, creative prompts, challenges and more!
The four Celebration Kits are:
- Maple Leaf – Arts & Culture
- Peace Tower – History, Symbols & Traditions
- Beaver – Outdoors & Physical Activity
- O Canada – Culinary Activities
