How to Celebrate Canada Day in Central Alberta

Sylvan Lake Canada Day

How we celebrate Canada Day has changed a bit over the years but one thing remains constant — the pride for our country, the awesome festivities, and the fireworks! From the confederation of Canada in 1867 with the bells of the Cathedral Church of St. James ringing in change in Toronto to the changing of Dominion Day to Canada Day in 1982, we love our country. Not sure how to celebrate Canada’s 151st birthday? We have a list of fun activities for you.
