The country and all things Canada are celebrated on Canada Day on July 1.
Is it possible to have a patriotic celebration without a grand parade? We think not. Big and small parades are held in villages and cities all over Canada. Other traditions include wearing the national flag colors, having outdoor picnics, sporting events, festivals, and fireworks.
Canada Day commemorates the anniversary of Confederation in 1867 when the British North America Act was passed.
Canada turned 155 years old in 2022.
Similar to how Americans celebrate the Fourth of July, Canada Day celebrates the country’s independence and its unity.
